Merry Christmas from the Holy Land!

Tomorrow, I and about 30 other priests and seminarians from the North American College leave for the Holy Land, the land in which Jesus Christ walked the earth, taught and healed, suffered, died, and rose again. We'll be spending about a week first in Galilee, the area of Israel that Jesus grew up in and considered his home, and then about a week in and around Jerusalem, where he died and rose and ascended to heaven. Please pray for us and for the success of our pilgrimage. Though I don't know all of the readers of this blog, I'll be keeping you and your intentions in my prayers as well.

A merry Christmas to you and yours! May God bless you with all good gifts this year at the coming of His Son into the world!
