Merry Christmas from the Office of New Evangelization and Justice! Rejoice and celebrate the birth of our Savior!

“Awake, mankind! For your sake God has become man. Awake, you who sleep, rise up from the dead and Christ will enlighten you. I tell you again: for your sake, God became man. Let us then joyfully celebrate the coming of our salvation and redemption. Let us celebrate the festive day on which he who is the great and eternal day came from the great and endless day of eternity into our own short day of time.” – St. Augustine
