St. Ignatius Loyola
In this Christmas greeting from Fr. Arturo Sosa, S.J., Superior General of the Society of Jesus, he invites us to "discover, with the eyes of faith and commitment, that the Incarnation of God in Jesus, among us, opens our eyes, our hands, our hearts. With new eyes, we can see in the Child of Bethlehem the ways of liberation from selfishness and oppression."

Weekly Wisdom
In his Monday, December 21st homily, Fr. Yesalonia invites us, as we await the birth of the Christ Child, "to get excited, to be joyful. To look at the miracle of love and the birth of Jesus, and to identify with it in the same kinds of ways we identified excitement and joy with other experiences in our lives."

As we enter the Christmas season, it is important for us to remember that, even in these uncertain times, there is joy, hope, and inspiration to be found. And, nowhere is this inspiration better evinced than in the works of artist Lili Sanchez-Ruiz, who visited the Parish House to grace us with her moving work.
