Merry Christmas to All!
Merry Christmas, indeed! With another calendar year coming to a close and a new liturgical year just begun, St. Nicholas has done his handiwork, and we, the Catholics of Champaign County, take stock of the many blessings and graces we have received. Immense are the graces God has bestowed upon us, and verily, how shall we make a return to God for all the good He has done for us? In this new Year of Grace, we should all strive to know God better, to love God more, and to do everything in our power to grow closer to Him. That’s a sure-fire recipe for peace on earth, and goodwill toward men.
Joy to the world! The Lord is come! Let Earth receive her King!
Let every heart prepare Him room, and Heaven and nature sing!
For the Greater Glory of God,
