Christmas 2008


Dear sisters and brothers, friends and benefactors,

May our loving God bring you deep joy and peace in this time of Christmas. We remember again our humble God coming into this world, becoming one with us so that we could become one with Him.

It is always a “wonder” to remember that God came among us small, vulnerable, into a poor country ruled and oppressed by another country; his mother had no proper place to give birth and in his early years he lived as a refugee in another country. A very unlikely, paradoxical God and Saviour! And yet in Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection we have been given access to our good God and to abundant life without end.

It is because of the great Love which we celebrate at Christmas that we respond with love by caring for those who are vulnerable today. Those of us who work directly with the orphans and the sick, those who pray for this work, and those who contribute material resources for this work all participate in returning love for Love. All of us together continue this message of love and reconciliation in today’s world.

Sr. Barbara, myself (Sr. Diane) and all the staff of Cabrini Ministries thank you for your kindness and generosity and for participating with us in the life-giving circle of love. May you and your loved ones be blessed again and again.

Sincerely, Srs. Diane and Barbara
