THE LIGHT OF CHRIST

Christ’s light was not lit once in Bethlehem and then extinguished. For two thousand years his light has shone upon the world. And it will continue to shine for all who believe in him and follow him. The light of Christ is a persistent light, and has the power to draw people to its shining. It shines in the midst of disasters and upheavals. It is a defiant light, which no darkness can overpower. Its purpose is not to judge us, but to show us the way to the Father’s kingdom. God has called us out of darkness into the wonderful light of his Son. We must live as children of light. So, let us imitate the Magi, and walk in the light of the Lord

WELCOME FR MAURICE

Fr Maurice will arrive and supply for the month of January. I am sure that Fr Maurice would welcome any invitations for dinner or any offers to make him something to eat and drop it off at the presbytery. Please do not burden Fr Maurice with Baptismal and Wedding enquiries. I will deal with them when I get back.

THREE WISE MEN

The scriptures only state that “...wise men from the East came to Jerusalem...” Legends are told about them and they have been given names. This is how they are often described: Gaspar (or Caspar), who has brown hair and a brown beard (or no beard!) and wears a green cloak and a gold crown with green jewels on it. He is the King of Sheba. Gaspar represents the Frankincense brought to Jesus. Frankincense: is sometimes used in worship in Churches and showed that people child worship Jesus. Melchior, who has long white hair and a white beard and wears a gold cloak. He is the King of Arabia. Melchior represents the Gold brought to Jesus. Gold: is associated with Kings and Christians believe that Jesus is the King of Kings. Balthazar, who has dark skin and a black beard (or no beard!) and wears a purple cloak. He is the King of Tarse and Egypt. Balthazar represents the gift of Myrrh that was brought to Jesus. Myrrh: is a perfume that is put on dead bodies to make them smell nice and showed that Jesus would suffer and die.
