A Christmas Message from Archbishop Smith
Posted on December 9th, 2016
Archbishop Richard Smith has a special Christmas message to our school communities.
The message includes a letter and prayer for all our families, both of whom were inspired by this season, and His Holiness Pope Francis’s Apostolic Exhortation, Amoris Laetitia. It was also inspired by your respective ministries. Mindful of those you serve, I make this appeal in communion with all of you, “Since this season often brings loneliness to those who suffer most in our families, I ask every one of you to share this truth with those around you: Jesus’s birth into a family makes clear that we are born for love and to love. To be human is to bask in the infinite love of God, and to offer our love to Him and our neighbours in return. It is truly beautiful to see Christ in others.”
