Monsignor’s Message – The Love Of Christ

Posted on Dec 5, 2017 in Monsignor's Message

This is a message from Msgr. Kieran Harrington, Vicar for Communications for the Diocese of Brooklyn that appears in The Tablet:

Christmas is coming, the geese are getting fat, please put a penny in the old man’s hat…” It is funny how the songs of our childhood remain with us. As we head into this sacred time, we reflect on the gift of the incarnation and the profound love that God has for us. As we reflect on His love for us, we also think about those in need around us. Poverty manifests itself in loneliness, poor health, emotional distress, failed relationships, addiction, war and so many other ways beyond simple material need. In the coming days, perhaps we will reflect on the Christ child’s birth into the poverty of our human situation and how it is transformed and given dignity. May we also seek to manifest the love of Christ to at least one person who finds her/himself somehow impoverished.

May God bless you,
Monsignor Kieran Harrington, V.E.
