The December issues of the Vincentian Marian Youth Bulletin is online.
An excerpt… “During this Christmas season let us be mindful of the fact that each time that we share hugs and kiss and smiles, each time that we say Merry Christmas or other such phrases that express our hope for another person, we are at the same time desiring that Jesus, present in our brothers and sisters, should have a happy birthday. Therefore, when we say these words they should be a heartfelt expression and not simply words that we utter mindlessly. Indeed, they should not simply be an expression of our desires for this person for one day of the year, but should be an expression of our desire that said persons will experience that happiness during the whole year. ”
