Welcome to Saint Charles

Dear Friends in Christ,

On behalf of the entire ministry team at St. Charles I say to you Merry Christmas! As we meditate on the joyful mystery of the birth of Our Lord Jesus Christ we are moved by the great love and humility of God. When we were estranged from Him because of our sins and those of our first parents he was not content to let us remain away. Without harsh or condemning words he, the Word of God, saved us. He became one of us so that we could be one with Him.

Look how God came into the world on Christmas Day. In the past he was seen by the Israelites only in terrifying form, such as fire or a dark cloud full of lightening. This, of course, is frightening. Today, Christmas Day, we recall that he comes now to us not with great and terrible signs, but humbly, as a little baby. Far from terrifying us he only wants us to hold him close to our hearts. I mean, who doesn’t want to hold the newborn baby? Who could possibly fear God who comes with tiny hands and pink cheeks wrapped in swaddling clothes? That’s what I thought, nobody.

So let’s focus on the joy this day deserves. Sure, there are many distractions during this season out there but we rise above them. Let us keep the image of the infant Jesus being held in his mother’s arms as she looks at us and asks each of us, “Would you like to hold him?”

May the Child Jesus bless you,
Father James Bahash
