Christmas Blessing – 2022

39th Year of Deacon Dave’s Christmas Display


You are the light of the world.  A city set on a hill

cannot be hidden.  Men do not light a lamp and then

put it under a bushel basket.  They set it on a stand

where it gives light to all in the house.

In the same way, your light must shine before men

so that they may see the goodness in your acts and give

praise to your heavenly Father. (Matthew 5: 14)


Each light here at Casa del Pomba (House of the Dove)

is dedicated as a prayer to end violence in the world.

We, as the children of God, must respect individual

life and celebrate our many cultural differences.


Violence in our cities and streets of our nation

and world goes against our Lord’s command to Love

one another.


Respect and tolerance are taught in our Churches

 and places of worship, but must also be taught at

home by our parents, grandparents

or guardians.


Our Christmas prayer and hope is for Peace on Earth

And love for one another.


May you be Blessed by God as you walk

under the Lights of the House of the Dove.
