Prepare the way of the Lord

Sometimes, Christmas is easy. Sometimes, it’s hard.

On Dec. 13, Archbishop Joseph F. Naumann, chaplain Father Joseph Chontos and members of the Community of the Lamb visited the Kansas Juvenile Correctional Complex in Topeka.

There, they met with many of the young men and women, reminding them that even at this hectic time of year — or, perhaps, especially at this hectic time of year — they were not forgotten. They were not alone.

The Community of the Lamb talked with and prayed for the young men at the Kansas Juvenile Correctional Complex in Topeka.

“BEHOLD, THE VIRGIN SHALL . . . BEAR A SON, AND THEY SHALL NAME HIM EMMANUEL, WHICH MEANS ‘GOD IS WITH US.'”
