Bishop Richard Moth's Christmas Message
In Advent the whole Church looks forward in Hope, to our celebration of the Saviour’s Birth and to the Coming Kingdom of the Father. It is a time when we are called to open ourselves anew to the promptings of the Holy Spirit, that our time of waiting may be fruitful. It is a time when we can reflect on the call that the Lord has given to each of us to be witnesses to Hope, calling others to share in the wonder of His Birth and in anticipation of that experience of God’s Love and will be possible only in the Kingdom of Heaven, when “we shall see Him as he really is”.
Let us pray for one another that our witness of Hope may truly call others into relationship with the Saviour, the Word who is Life.
I take this opportunity to wish you a Joyous celebration of the wonderful Feast of Christmas.
With every Blessing,
Bishop of Arundel & Brighton
