Hello Trinity Families,
I hope all of you are taking some time this
Advent to look for the true meaning of
Christmas, since it so easily gets lost in the
craziness of the season.
I offer a simply way to begin: The following is
a reflection from our Hurry Up and Wait
Seasoning your greetings
I used to be more careful. Not wanting to
offend, I kept my December greetings to “Have a
nice holiday,” if I didn’t know someone’s
religious background. Then I thought of
missionaries, who risked their lives to spread
the Good News. Some of these missionaries made
my political correctness feel pretty wimpy. Now
I’m more generous with “Merry Christmas” and
share it joyfully with everyone I meet, store
clerks, delivery drivers, my kid’s coaches. It’s
my simple, tiny way of honoring and imitating
the missionaries and martyrs who spread the
faith. Merry Christmas! Pass it on!
Enjoy this wonderful season of Advent and
Christmas with your family and friends.
God Bless You and Merry Christmas!
