Christmas Eve Day
Year of Consecrated Life & Extraordinary Year of Mercy
900th Jubilee Year of St. Norbert's Conversion
Dear Norbertine Confreres and Consoeurs, Brothers and Sisters in Religious Life, Family, Friends, and Benefactors,
Laudetur Jesus Christus! With deep gratitude for your friendship in Christ, support and prayers, on behalf of Mother Mary Augustine and all the Norbertine Canonesses, we wish you a joyful and blessed Christmas (2015 e-mail Christmas card attached), and an outpouring of special graces in the remaining weeks of this Year of Consecrated Life and throughout this Extraordinary Jubilee Year of Mercy. As we continue to thank God for your faith-filled loving presence in our lives, and all that you do for us, we hope that our daily prayers and sacrifices for you and all of your special intentions help to speak for us. May the coming New Year of the Lord 2016 bring us all to an ever deeper union with the Sacred Heart of Jesus through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, that we may be humble witnesses of His divine love, grace and mercy to all. Let us continue to pray for each other ...
Prayerfully and gratefully in the Christ-Child, Our Lady, St. Joseph, & St. Norbert,
The Norbertine Canonesses of the Bethlehem Priory of St. Joseph
