Let us all rejoice at the birth of the Savior!  The Prince of Peace is born for us today!

This year we dressed the Infant Jesus at the Juniorate in Washington as the Prince of Peace, holding a dove and with the names of those nations at war in the pouch of His Sacred Heart.  We pray that He may reign in all hearts and bring peace to the earth.  Let us all pray for peace this Christmas, especially remembering our missionary priests and sisters in Syria and the people they serve.

Merry Christmas to you and your family from all of us!
