Cardinal's Christmas Campaign
My Dear Friends in Christ,
Long ago, a young couple faced great uncertainty with great faith as they searched for a place to safely bring their newborn child into the world. Their faith was rewarded with the birth of their infant son, giving us all the gift of hope–the very first Christmas gift.
Centuries later, the timeless gift of hope that we received through Christ’s birth continues to sustain us, and we are called to share that gift with others. The central ministries of our Archdiocese of Boston answer that call every day. My annual Christmas Campaign provides much-needed funding for these ministries so that they can continue serving and bringing hope to those in need.
This Advent season, may we join together in faith and recommit ourselves to sharing the gift of hope with our families and all of our brothers and sisters in need.
Devotedly yours in Christ,
Cardinal Seán O’Malley, O.F.M., CAP.
Give the gift of hope this Christmas.
The Holy Family Prayer
Holy Family of Nazareth, make our family one with you. Help us to be instruments of peace. Grant that love, strengthened by grace, may prove mightier than all the weaknesses and trials through which our families sometimes pass. May we always have God at the center of our hearts and homes until we are all one family, happy and at peace in our true home with you. Amen.
Cardinal Seán took some time to share the story of the birth of Christ from the Gospel of Luke with us. Videos will be available in English, Spanish, Portuguese, and French and will be available the first Sunday of Advent.
