Joy­ful car­ols

Broome Advertiser - - OPINION - Bishop Christo­pher Saun­ders Catholic Dio­cese of Broome

The Com­mu­nity Christ­mas Car­ols held on Male Oval in Broome re­cently were well at­tended and much ap­pre­ci­ated.

They re­vealed fit­tingly the won­der of the mys­tery that is Christ­mas and the great joy there is in the beau­ti­ful words of so many of the car­ols we sang so well.

The ever-present theme that we cel­e­brate at this time of year is one of grat­i­tude, unity and peace.

The thank­ful­ness of hu­man­ity for the com­ing of Je­sus was clear in the words of Silent Night and other songs, leav­ing us in the hope of a peace-filled time.

I wish you, your fam­ily and our world God’s choic­est bless­ings this holy hope­ful Christ­mas sea­son.
