MESSAGE FROM FATHER JENSON
In first reading for this Sunday, the last of Advent, we see King David desiring to build a house for the Lord, a temple grand. The Lord in turn promises to build for David a household that will never die out through a descendent who will be a son to the Lord God and reign forever. As we prepare to celebrate Christmas this week may we also desire to build a place in our heart and soul for Jesus that he may find a warm and hospitable place for him in each of us. Like Mary, the humble of heart know that we must have Jesus with us every moment of our lives to live life to the fullest. May Our Lady help us through her loving prayers to desire this and to come to Jesus at Christmas with a hunger for him in our hearts. Such a desire will be the manger warm and welcoming into which he will come and stay with us always. May Our Lord bless each and all of you this Christmas with love, peace and joy.
God bless you all and have a Merry Christmas!
Father Glen Jenson, Pastor
