Pastoral letter

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ,

My warmest greetings and prayerful wishes for a blessed Christmas to you and your family. On Christmas Day, we greet the Redeemer who came to us as a child in the humble stable at Bethlehem. This Child is the promise of God. He is the one who comes in peace, the one who lights the world and gives us sure hope.

I write briefly about another gift we have received through Christ — our seminarians. Each of their lives and their response to the call to the priesthood of Jesus Christ is a great gift to us. They are part of God’s promise that took flesh 2,000 years ago in Bethlehem in the person of Jesus Christ.

For generations each year at Christmas the people of the archdiocese have made a special gift to support our seminarians at Kenrick-Glennon Seminary, as a natural expression of their Catholic faith. Please be generous in responding to the Christmas Day collection for the support of our seminarians. Also, I ask you to pray for them and for our priests. They are truly Christ with us. They are a sign to us of a future full of hope.

Asking God’s blessing upon you and your homes, I remain

Yours devotedly in Christ,

(Most Rev.) Raymond L. Burke

Archbishop of St. Louis
