Christ is our Light. And as the winter days grow shorter and darkness descends more rapidly, we are reminded of the shadows that can darken our own lives. Loneliness, illness, separation, addiction, unemployment, alienation, poverty, and sin can bring loss of hope and even despair. Christmas proclaims that it does not have to be that way. The poor shepherds heard “good news of great joy” that pierced the cold midnight sky and the same can happen to us. The Savior is born. Light has entered the world. The Clergy and faithful of the Diocese of Lake Charles join me, Bishop Provost, in wishing you the joyful light of a Merry Christmas.
+The Most Reverend Glen John Provost, D.D., M.A.
Bishop of Lake Charles
