Once again this year, Bishop Baker is encouraging Catholics in the Diocese of Birmingham to celebrate the Christmas season beginning on Christmas Day in a special way at the main meal of the day. The attached devotion appeared in this week's One Voice as a pull-out, but we are making it available from our website to make you aware of it. It is entitled Celebrating Christmas with the Christ Candle of Hope. Bishop Baker writes, "In our homes I invite everyone to have a Christ Candle of Hope that could be lit at the main Christmas dinner, a practice continuing throughout the Christmas season, using the prayers in this devotional."
Please print this or consult it each day and pray the prayers contained herein.
May you all have a most blessed and holy Christmas season!
