More than 2,000 years ago, Mary and Joseph gave thanks for the birth of Jesus Christ. Today, 2,000 years later, may we all continue to give thanks for that birth and the subsequent life, ministry, death, resurrection and ascension of Jesus Christ. May we also continue to give thanks for His sacrifice on our behalf and for the path to salvation that He and He alone provides for all those who will accept Him as Lord and Savior.
