Posted on 21. Dec, 2012 in Uncategorized

A very happy Christmas to all our website visitors from the community of the Irish College, Rome .

Le gach dea ghuí agus beannacht don Nollaig agus don Athbhliain.

Buon Natale!

‘If God does not also have power over matter, then he simply is not God. But he does have this power, and through the conception and resurrection of Jesus Christ he has ushered in a new creation. So as the Creator he is also our Redeemer. Hence the conception and birth of Jesus from the Virgin Mary is a fundamental element of our faith and a radiant sign of hope.’
