Very dear Sisters and Friends,
The season of Advent is over and the period of expectation is complete. Now it is time to celebrate the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ. During the Christmas season, the readings of the liturgy invite us to meditate on the birth of the Lord from different perspectives. The Gospels tell different but complementary stories about Jesus' birth, the Incarnation, and the salvation that Jesus brings to the world. For our reflections this year, we shall dwell on insights from the Gospel according to St. John.
