Good evening! It’s 6.30pm here and in an hour and a half we will have our Christmas Eve Mass in Kilmovee. Just wanted to let you know you will be in my thoughts and prayers at and during that Mass. I hope that you enjoy much peace and goodwill around these days and that, in your gatherings as family and friends, you will fully know the value of both. Many thanks for your kindness to me throughout the past year and for your ongoing friendship. It is not taken for granted.
Earlier we gathered in the church with some of our younger parishioners to place the figures in the Crib. All but one – the one for whom we wait and whose arrival we celebrate throughout the world this night. May His arrival not go unnoticed, especially by those whose hearts have been hardened through violence and misguided actions. May the King of Peace bring lasting peace to what is, sadly, a troubled world.
God Bless you all.
