Catholic Gallery Wishes you and your family a Very Happy New Year 2022

First Reading: Numbers 6: 22-27

So they shall put my name on the Israelites, and I will bless them. (27)

We are a chosen race, a royal priesthood through Christ Jesus! This message is an epic reminder for us, who were once gentile but by the blood of Jesus were are cleansed and adopted into his own fold.

Thank You, God!

Responsorial Psalm: Psalms 67: 2-3, 5, 6, 8

Let the peoples praise you, O God, let all the peoples praise you.

Praise God for He inhabitants our praises! Amen!

Second Reading: Galatians 4: 4-7

So you are no longer a slave but a child and if a child then also an heir, through God. (7)

These are words of redemption and love. St Paul explains the process through which we have been adopted into Gad’s own family! God has sent the Spirit of His Son into our hearts, crying “Abba Father!” We are blessed indeed! Amen!

Gospel: Luke 2: 16-21

The shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all they had heard and seen, as it had been told them. (20)

The shepherds went to see Baby Jesus in faith and they returned praising God. The essence of being a Christian is to be joyful in faith and courageous in actions. As soon as the shepherds had been told by the angels, they went in haste to see “what the Lord had made known to them” (15) May we learn to discern what the Lord tells us and then act on it in quick adherence to the word! Amen!

May We All Have A Wonderful New Year Ahead! May we walk in the Light of Christ and hasten in good works! May the Spirit of Christ who lives in us Always Be Our Guide!

Mother Mary Pray for us! St Joseph Pray for us! Thank You, Jesus! Amen, Amen, Amen!
