Christmas Message 2021’ — Immanuel

Bishop Stephen Chow, S.J. invites us to be companions with those who are in need

With the approaching of Christmas, Bishop Stephen Chow Sau Yan, S.J. invites us, during the coming joyful season, to be God’s messengers through our companionship with those who are in need of it. They can be our loved ones, especially our young people, those who are feeling helpless, lonely, and frustrated, those who are struggling with mood disorders, those who are waiting to be pardoned and reconciled, and the list can go on.

If Christmas were to be celebrated like a secular festival in the holiday season, it would not be easy to get hyped up in a world still very much living under the clout of the COVID-19 pandemic. However, Christmas for us Christians is the joyful celebration of Immanuel, “God-with-Us” (Mt. 1:23), i.e., God intervening directly with the Son of God coming into our human history walking with us.
May the blessings of Immanuel be with us and our loved ones throughout this Christmas Season and 2022!
