Christmas is here !!

Advent has almost passed..... and with the Christmas season we celebrate the birth of Christ. Writing in the Parish Press on 3rd December (Advent 1) Fr Russell reminded us -

"... Advent is a time to prepare our hearts so that Christ may manifest within us. Christ is in the heart of everyone, so what does this mean? It means that the power of Christ's Holy Spirit will appear within us filling us with the wisdom and love for God...This Advent we too may call for the Lord to appear within us. He is already there but we are often so concerned with day to day life that we forget Him. So we must take time each day to be with the Lord; offer each day to Him and allow his eternal presence to be felt. When we are still, don't dwell in the past or future, and give attention to the present moment - all we are left with is the Lord. Be still and know that the Lord is God, and that He is with you and in you........".
