Merry Christmas!

“Why do we rejoice in celebrating Christ’s coming as a man? We rejoice, we are jubilant because of his reason for coming: to reconcile us. He reconciled us by becoming not simply one of us. He made us one with himself. He became human to make us one with himself. He became human to make us in a unique way “divine.” His becoming one with us changed human nature itself forever. But he did even more. He made possible our purification, our renewal, our reconciliation with his Father.
He began that process by being conceived in the womb of a woman, by being born into the world on the first Christmas Day,
by being crucified unto death, by rising to restore us to life.”

– John Cardinal O’Connor

Here we are taking up a mission of Prayer and Intercession on behalf of our nation and the world, fulfilling our Founder Cardinal O’Connor’s vision to spend sustained periods of prayer each day to bring about a restoration of a sense of the sacredness of all human life. Prayer is the foundation upon which we can build a new and lasting culture of life and civilization of love. Please join us.
