Christmas Greeting from Fr. Shenan Boquet

On this Christmas day, I am reminded of the Gospel of John, when in Chapter 3, verse 16 St. John says, “God so loved the world that he gave his only son.”

Today my dear friends, we celebrate a feast of love, and how love first entered human history. We celebrate the birth of a child, a child that lived among us. This child lived in time, and has forever left an indelible mark among you, me and upon our world.

On behalf of Human Life International’s Board of Directors, my staff, and our team of international pro-life missionaries, I would like to extend to you and your family a very Merry Christmas, and assure you that I will remember you and your intentions during Holy Mass today and throughout the Christmas season.

Again my friends, Merry Christmas!
