I greet my Patriarch, Archbishop, Cardinal, Our Matriarch all ministers of the Gospel well wishers of the Mystical Order. I greet you in peace not the peace of man but the peace of God that passeth all understanding.
Today as I write this short message for the Christmas season I remember after Mary learned that she bear a child she sang My spirit rejoices in God my Savior (Luke 1: 47) When the shepherds found the Christ child, they returned to their fields ‘glorifying and praising God’ (Luke 2:20) While shepherds watch their flocks by night all seated on the ground……When we grasp the truth of Christmas we also found amazing joy…a long lasting life, energizing soul, strengthening heart and warming joy. Jesus came to show us what God is like, and God will do whatever it takes to reach to us.
That is the truth about Christmas Just then an internal voice reminded us of how much our situation was like, what we encounter in God’s gift that we celebrate and receive at Christmas. We can never repay God’s gift of Christ. All we can do is accept His gift with joy then allow that gift of Jesus Christ to become part of who we are in this world. The Magi saw the child with his mother Mary and they bowed down and worshiped him then they opened their treasures and presented him with gifts. Think about it this Christmas season as we open our gifts, let us find the true Spirit Christ in our hearts. Help us to accept Jesus Christ as our personal gift from God our Father this Christmas. Let us try to place our hearts and mind to go to Bethlehem and see this that has come to pass which is the Lord has made known to us (Luke 2;15)
On behalf of our Patriarch and the Mystical Order we want to wish each and every one a Merry Christmas with God’s blessings and a Bright and Prosperous New Year.
Your servant in Christ,
Dr. Patricia Hackshaw LOM, OHPM
Queen Abbess of The Mystical Order
Assistant Grand Commanding Mother of The Mystical Court
