Emmanuel, Christmas 2016

Emmanuel, God is with us


Migrant Camp, Idomeni, Border of Greece


The Word became flesh
and dwelt among us



God so loved the world
That he gave his only Son …



Comfort my people,
says your God


Nice, France


Make sure that nobody pays back
wrong for wrong



 Do to others
as you would have them do to you




Love your enemies,
do good to them



For all the footgear of battle,
every cloak rolled in blood,
is burnt, and consumed by fire.
For there is a child born for us





… from where shall come my help?


The Mediterranean


And despite all,
all that we do,
all we leave undone,

where we are,
what we have,
what we don’t possess 

Emmanuel, God is with us


Emmanuel, God is with us


Emmanuel, God is with us


Christmas in Darfur

Christmas Mass, Dafur

A peaceful Christmas to all

    O Lord, you have come to us as a small child, but you have brought us the greatest of all gifts, the gift of eternal love. Caress us with your tiny hands, embrace us with your tiny arms, and pierce our hearts with your soft, sweet cries. (Nativity prayer of St. Bernard of Clairvaux)
    Wishing you all a blessed Christmas, a renewed sense of wonder and hope and a chance to recharge the batteries for all the work that has to be done in 2017. Nil desperandum. Hope, hope. Do not give up! Thank you for all your efforts. Bail ó Dhia ar an obair. ?
