On the Holy Night of Christmas

24 December, 2006

“On the Holy Night of Christmas I will celebrate the Divine Mysteries for all our poor Congregation, and I will place the hearts of all the professed and novices in the holy swaddling clothes of the gentle Infant so that he enliven them, strengthen them, inflame them, and sanctify them to have them do great things for the glory of God.”

A Christmas Reflection from St. Paul of the Cross

24 December, 2006

“Many years ago I had an Infant painted on German paper that had him sleeping quietly on a cross. Oh, how much that symbol pleased me! …. So on Christmas you will have the Infant in your heart and be transformed entirely into Him in love. Jesus bless you and make you as holy as I desire.”
