Is 52:7-10; Hebr 1:1-6; Jn 1:1-18

CHRISTMAS CREED

* I believe in Jesus Christ and in the beauty of the gospel begun in Bethlehem.

* I believe in the one whose spirit glorified a little town; and whose spirit still brings music to persons all over the world, in towns both large and small.

* I believe in the one for whom the crowded inn could find no room, and I confess that my heart still often excludes Christ from my life today.

* I believe in the one who the rulers of the earth ignored and the proud could never understand; whose life was among common people, whose welcome came from persons of hungry hearts.

* I believe in the one who proclaimed the love of God to be invincible:

* I believe in the one whose cradle was a mother’s arms, whose modest home in Nazareth had love for its only wealth, who looked at persons and made them see what God’s love saw in them, who by love brought sinners back to purity, and lifted human weakness up to meet the strength of God.

* I confess my ever-lasting need of God: The need of forgiveness for our selfishness and greed, the need of new life for empty souls, the need of love for hearts grown cold.

* I believe in God who gives us the best of himself. I believe in Jesus, the Son of the living God, born in Bethlehem, for me and for the world.

Although we may be engaged in a variety of ministries, we all share the common call to apostolic discipleship in a community of the Catholic Apostolate of St. Vincent Pallotti."(OWL, 91)

"Our relationships with one another should be marked by a love that bears all, believes all and hopes for all, a love that is neither conceited nor jealous, which hurts no one, nor is embittered or resentful. It is never discouraged but remains patient and kind. It rejoices with others and shares their suffering. It is with this kind of love that we should help and support one another." (OWL, 90)
