2016 Circular Letter - 4LIFE

The liturgical season of Annunciation is a time of joy and hope as it proclaims the Good News from the Lord. The Good News is about the birth of two babies; John the Baptist and Jesus and the joy it radiates. This joy is the joy of Life; the human and the divine life. We witness to the “care and respect” given to the new lives by the divine and the human. We experience this joy in the “care and respect” given through the “warmth and tenderness” of persons, spouses, families, communities, the whole world and the heavens.
