“Do not be afraid; for behold, I proclaim to you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. For today in the city of David a savior has been born for you who is Christ and Lord. And this will be a sign for you: you will find an infant wrapped in swaddling clothes and lying in a manger.”
from your Resurrection Parish Family
The true joy of Christmas is the love of Christ, shared with family and friends.
May the miracle of Christmas fill your heart and home with love, joy, and peace.
We celebrate the gift of Jesus. He is Emmanuel! God with us!
Celebrating Christmas in Your Church of the Home
Christmas is one of the most important days of the Church year, second only to Easter itself. We celebrate the birth of the Lord Jesus Christ which is the mystery of the incarnation - God becoming flesh. God chose to become one of us.
The liturgical season of Christmas begins today, Christmas Eve, and concludes on January 8, the Feast of the Baptism of the Lord. During this season, we celebrate the birth of Christ into our world and into our hearts and reflect on the gift of salvation that is born with him, including the fact that he was born to die for us.
How will your Church of the Home celebrate Christmas?
How will you continue the celebrations beyond this weekend until January 8th?
“The Shepherd” from the TV series The Chosen is a beautifully made, dramatic short movie about the birth of Jesus. It is the Christmas story through the eyes of some local shepherds. These are the shepherds that are referred to in the Gospel of Luke: Now there were shepherds in that region living in the fields
and keeping the night watch over their flock.
Join us for Christmas Mass this weekend in person at 4:00 PM & 9:00 PM on Saturday, 9:00 AM on Sunday, on www.gbres.org/live, our YouTube channel, and our Facebook page.
