Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
I pray that you and your family are well, but the reality is that for many of us in a time of global pandemic, we are not doing well. All of us know someone who has had coronavirus or who is suffering from it now. Many of us know someone that we love who has died. 2020 has been a difficult year by any measure.
However you are celebrating this year, I hope you will be able to reach out and find the God who is with us. I hope you will take comfort from the presence of God with you, and perhaps also find opportunity to comfort others.
Father James Bharataputra, SJ
