Prepare The Way
Christmas Masses attract large numbers of people from diverse backgrounds who bring with them a variety of faith experiences. Among those who celebrate with the Church at Christmas are faithful parishioners, their relatives and friends, those who are irregular in their participation in the liturgical life of the Church and complete strangers. It is important that all are made to feel welcome so that as God’s people, they will be united in the prayer of the Church and give thanks and praise for the salvation offered to them in Christ. The Christmas Mass continues to be the principal way for us to express our joy and gratitude for the mystery of the Incarnation.
