Merry Christmas and Happy Feast of St. Stephen!
It always seems strange to go from celebrating the birth of our Newborn King to the death of the first martyr. But I guess it is supposed to remind us that Christ came to die for us. Mary and Joseph didn’t have much time to bask in peace and joy at Christ’s arrival either. 🙂 But we will continue to celebrate the birth of our Lord for a while yet, even as we remember the hardships St. Stephen, the Holy Innocents, many others and Christ himself, have suffered.
Just though I’d share some pictures of our Christmas celebrations here at the house of formation. I hope you enjoyed it as much as we did.
May God grant you His love and His peace.
