A Message from Father Nathan

My dearest people closest to my heart!
God bless you and your generous heart

The Savior is Born! Rejoice!

Born to Save us from the bondage of Sin

Merry Christmas!

God undertook the Incarnation of Jesus as True God and true man to save us from the bondage of sin.

Scriptures teach only one Incarnation, and its purpose is given in Jn 3:16:

“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life”.

Today we call our celebration of the Incarnation of God in a Baby “Good News” because our Divine Savior has been born.

As our Savior Jesus liberated us from slavery to sin and atoned for our sins through suffering death on the cross, and Resurrection.

So every Christmas reminds us that we must do the same as our Savior. Christmas challenges us to accept Jesus in the manger as our saving God and personal Savior and to surrender our lives to him, allowing him to rule our hearts and lives every day in the New Year 2024.

May He radiate His Presence from within you as sharing love, unconditional forgiveness, humble service, a compassionate heart, and overflowing generosity. May the Holy Babe of Bethlehem bless you with health in your body and soul and grant you a peaceful and blessed New Year.

I assure you of my special prayers during my Christmas Holy Masses and every day in the New Year. I am sending prayers and hearty Christmas greetings to you.

May you receive God’s most special blessings this Christmas season! May you have the gift of faith, the blessing of hope, and the peace of His love at Christmas and always.

May the wonder of the first Christmas, the joy of God’s abundant blessings, and the peace of Jesus’ presence be with you always.

May your heart be lifted in praise this Christmas for the wonderful gift of Jesus and the joy He brings to our lives.

May all that is beautiful, and meaningful and brings you joy be yours this Christmas season full of wonderful surprises, treats, and nonstop laughter.

May the spirit of Christmas be with you year-round.

Merry Christmas!

I hope you receive one blessing after another this coming year. I send my humble prayers and wishes.

I leave after Masses on Christmas Day for a month at home in India.

Everything is set for St. Gabriel parish to function smoothly during my monthlong absence: priests, and different persons to take care of different tasks.

People know what to do.

If there is anything urgent, let Marie the parish secretary know about it I will keep in touch with her, and she will attend to that.

Let the smooth running of the parish continue. Hence, if you have an idea for better running of the parish, please hold on and wait until I come back.

For better administration, I don’t like surprises while I am away. Let us attend to them when I come back.

May God bless you all. Happy Christmas and a prosperous New Year to you.

With lots of love and blessings,

Ever wanting to be faithful to your service,

— Fr. Sahayanathan Nathan

The First Fridays Devotion also called the Act of Reparation to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, is a Catholic devotion to offer reparations for sins, which had its origin in the apparitions of Christ at Paray-leMonial, France, reported by Saint Margaret Mary Alacoque in the 17th century.
