Every year the Chennai community has a Christmas get together but last year we decided to take the message out. We went carolling!
We visited 11 homes that accepted our invitation across Chennai to share the joy of Christmas cheer through music. The families we visited were either a part of our CLS or were the couples that missed attending the CLS. What made it even more special was, our young kids who were all below 8 years, they beautifully displayed a tableau of the Nativity scene while the older kids shared the Word of God. The Chapter servant led each family in prayer.
We started the carolling at 4 pm on 17th December and ended at 2 am on 18th December. It was such a blessing to be able to visit families and yes, we did end up eating a lot of cake as well. Who can say no to Chennai’s hospitality?
That Christmas season, let us remember the words of St. Patrick, “Christ be with me, Christ within me, Christ behind me, Christ before me, Christ beside me, Christ to win me, Christ to comfort me and restore me, Christ beneath me, Christ above me, Christ in quiet, Christ in danger, Christ in hearts of all that love me, Christ in mouth of friend and stranger.”
Signing off for 2016 on such a happy note, made me remember and treasure it all the more that inspired me to pen it down and share my experience to all!
