Sunday of the Holy Fathers

Slava Isusu Hristu! Glory be to Jesus Christ!

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ!

We are so close already to the Holy Night and I hope that in the midst of all our preparations for Christmas we can clearly hear the songs of the angels: “Glory to God in the highest, and peace on earth to those with whom God is pleased.” I hope that all of the running, rushing, buying, baking… etc… won’t make us miss what Christmas is all about. And what it is we have heard in the Gospel of today: Emmanuel! – God is with us! (Mt. 1: 1-25).

Yes, Jesus’ Birthday is just few days from now. Let us be prepared for it. Not with our material presents for him, for he doesn’t need that, but with our souls, our willingness to love him, follow him, and serve him. Let him be born again and again in our hearts throughout all the days of our lives.

Yours in Christ!

Fr. Janko!
