Dark Winter brings us Christmas;
Nations are sunk in night.
That universal darkness
Is pierced by rays of light.
This light comforts, refreshes
Fearful and grieving hearts.
To weak and dying spirits
New life and strength imparts.
M. Basilea Schlink
Our love and prayers go out to all who are in shock and mourning after the recent terrorist attacks.
May the perpetrators be caught and further attacks or reciprocal violence be deterred.
Above all, may God Himself comfort the wounded and grieving, and let many turn to Him.
Praying that our Lord Jesus will be very close with the peace that only He can give,
The Evangelical Sisters of Mary in Australia
