Archbishop’s Christmas Message 2015

AB Jackels suit 600x743In Jesus

The Father’s mercy has a human face

A voice that pardons and a hand that serves

A body to be laid down in sacrifice

And so, Merry Christmas!

In Jesus’ followers

His mission of mercy continues

In the ministries of the Church

In works of mercy by each of us

As a consequence, Happy New Year!
