In darkness, a light

The Marist International JPIC Blog is coordinated weekly by Fr Ben McKenna with French translations by Fr Jean-Bernard Jolly. In their Christmas-New Year message, they say 'The light comes upon us, as we see war, injustice, and violence against the humble all over this world. Blessings on you, your family, and your community for the Christmas time and the approaching New Year.'

Their greeting includes a prayer and image from New Zealand and Australian Marists, Frs Peter Healy and Jim Carty:  click here..                               [Jan 02, 2023]
