Advent 2017

Dear brothers and sisters,

Peace of Christ be with You!

Every Advent is a precious moment for us to prepare a dwelling place within our hearts in order to receive Jesus. This is the best gift we can offer Him who is Himself the Ultimate Gift to mankind. We should, therefore, take Advent seriously to welcome this special guest, our Lord our Saviour, into our lives.

John the Baptist puts it rightly: Prepare the way of the Lord, make straight His paths!

What is your plan for this Advent? You may buy gifts for your loved ones; you may spend time cleaning up your homes to welcome your families/friends; you may volunteer your time to serve others, etc. Besides keeping ourselves busy with all these meaningful work, let us try to spend some quiet time to sort out our lives and to free up our minds to attend to the Divine Infant, the Ultimate Gift, who thirsts for our tender love and care.

As year end draws near, let us also count our blessings and share our best gifts with the world. Giving is an effective way to prepare our hearts to make more room for Christ. Please consider making a donation to FLL which will enable us to share this ultimate gift of Christ to those who have yet to find the Light in their lives.

Christ, be Our Light!

May this Advent and Christmas seasons bring you overflowing joy and peace!

Joyfully in Christ,

Paul Yeung
Executive Director, FLL
