Christmas Blessings to the Home Bound

This is a Christmas blog for the home bound. This is our time. Many times we are forgotten. To reach God, we have to climb the Lord’s mountain. We all know climbing a mountain is difficult and takes a lot of endurance. Since we are physically disabled and home bound this journey is in our spirit taking our soul to the tip of the mountain. With the birth of Christ Jesus, we now have that very One who walks beside us guiding us up this mountain. There is no need to ever have to turn back because He is right there with us taking each step with us. If we did not have Christ we would not have Christmas. So let us thank God for such a wonderful gift and a wonderful day. Have a most blessed Christmas everyone.
Your brother in Christ,
Mark
Hermits of St. Giles

About hermitsoftheholycross

The Hermits of the Holy Cross is a Contemplative Association for those who are permanently physically disabled and have become “home bound” to their local Church and are in need of continuous medical care. The Association of the Hermits of the Holy Cross is set-up in such a way that those who are ill and physically disabled can live out their monastic spirituality from their own home. We assist the Church and the world through our life of prayer and freely offering up our sufferings that stem from our disabilities. For the Hermits, our hermitage is within our heart and the Cross of Christ is life for us and for our world.
