A Christmas Message- A Holy Christmas and a Blessed New Year to all the members of our St. John de Brebeuf Catholic Secondary School community.
Christmas “The Word became flesh and dwelt among us.” (Jn 1:14) The Incarnation- God becomes human and enters human history. Jesus is fully God and fully human. The angel said to the shepherds in Bethlehem, “ a Saviour is born who is the Messiah and Lord. You will find the infant wrapped in swaddling clothes and lying in a manger. “ (Lk 2: 10-13) Thank-you Jesus for your love by entering our world to save us.
