Christmas Message from the Bishop

In the seasons of Advent and Christmas, the writings of the Old Testament prophet Isaiah, have been prominent. In one of his prophecies, Isaiah describes
the promised Messiah, the Christ, as “ Wonderful Counsellor”. He will teach people about God and the way to God. In his unique life Jesus was a masterful teacher.
As we come to the close of another year and are about to enter a New Year,
I leave you with words from Isaiah, Chapter 30, verse 21….. “your eyes will see your teacher, and your ear shall hear a word behind you saying, this is the way walk in it.”
Can I wish you a blessed Christmas and may we listen to his voice and walk his way together in 2015.

Bishop of Kilmore, Elphin and Ardagh.
