Friday Followings: Merry Christmas – 2018

Hello Gloria Dei,
I want to take this opportunity to say Merry Christmas and a big thank you to all of you. You are an amazing community of faith. Inspired by Christ and filled with faith, you are the living Body of Christ on earth today, sharing God’s love in so many ways. Thank you for living out your baptismal mandate with such joy: “Let your Light shine before others that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in Heaven.”
So, thank you Gloria Dei. I pray that you will experience deeply this Christmas the best present ever, the presence of God in Jesus Christ.
