Merry Christmas Catholic The Diocese of Lake Charles Icdiocese.org T, Ne Bishop Provost's Christmas Message 2020 This year has been unprecedented. We are suffering through a pandemie that has stricken hundreds of thousands in this coantry alone. In our region of Southwest Louisiana two hurricanes, with a separation of ive weeks and making landfall jast a few miles of each other, have dev- astated our homes, businesses, and churches All of this has brought uncertainty and disrupted our lives. While these upsetting eireumstances bave ehallenged us, we are making heroic efforts to rise to the occasion with God's Grace. Now, at the end of this horrifie year, we have arrived at Christmas. What does this feast have to tell as? The message ofChristmas is the message of the Prince of Peace. The prophet Isaiah tells us that the child born to us will be called "Wonder Counselor, God-Hero, Futher Forever. Prince of Peace" dsaiah 95 This is no ordinary child. He is born ofa virgin, and his birth is the fulill- ment of a dream and a plan foretold by prophets and wise men and women for centuries and nestled in the Will of a loving God. And when that child finally appears, the angels sing. "Glory to God in the highest and on earth peace" (Luke 2:141. Prace! We want peare, but the peace we want is not the peace that this world can give. We pray for a peace that begins and ends with God's Will for us In His Will is our peace. We should not want to return to the way things were before the contagion and the storms God is trying to teach us something What He wants is better, and we should want that better life as well Come let us worship Let us approsch the manger of Bethlehem, absorb its message of peace, and depart from it with bearts and minds changed and renewed. It is my prayer that this Christmas will be like no other we have ever experienced before. To you all I extend my bless ings for a peace that only God can give.
