To the editor:
As this Christmas season draws near we want to express our deep gratitude to each of our dear friends in the Rochester Diocese. Their generosity in last May’s second collection for our Brazil and Chile Missions is a concrete sign of our common commitment to Jesus incarnate in our impoverished sisters and brothers. During these times of economic insecurity, may we be strengthened by our belief in the God who comes to us each day, He who is our hope in the midst of all anxieties.
May 2009 be blessed with continued trust in God’s generosity and our willingness to always share our blessings with a joyful spirit.
