Merry Christmas!

In a world fraught with challenges, it is heartening to gather together and celebrate the timeless hope found in the Christmas story.

As we navigate the challenges our country and world face, the Christmas story provides hope that shines bright. In the Book of John 1:9-10, we are reminded of the enduring light that entered the world, a light that illuminates the path for everyone. "He was in the world, and the world was made through Him..."

In the face of adversity, we can turn our gaze towards Jesus, where we can find peace and guidance. The Christmas story becomes a source of strength as we confront challenges both old and new. The timeless message of love, compassion, and hope encapsulated in this narrative serves as a unifying force, transcending the myriad of issues that surround us.

While we embrace the festive spirit, let us pause to reflect on the true meaning of Christmas. Beyond the glittering decorations and the exchange of gifts lies a deeper meaning—one of love, joy, and the warmth of togetherness. It's a time to cherish our family and friends and to create lasting memories that will echo through the year. We can find strength, inspiration, and unwavering faith that no matter the obstacles, a brighter future is possible.

As Parliament adjourns for a few weeks, I am looking forward to spending time connecting with the good people of Battle River—Crowfoot, and hearing about the issues important to you.

During this festive season, I’d also like to extend my heartfelt gratitude to the dedicated members of Canada's Armed Forces and their families. To those who will spend Christmas on deployment, away from the embrace of loved ones, your sacrifice does not go unnoticed. Your commitment to freedom here at home and around the world is a testament to the spirit of selflessness that defines this season, especially in a time of global instability.

Also, while the Christmas story provides so much hope, for the growing number of Canadians who are struggling to make ends meet… it can be a very stressful time. There are many food banks, churches, charities, and local organizations that work to make sure that no one goes without the basics at Christmas time. If you can, consider supporting one of these worthy causes to help provide that little bit of Christmas miracle to those in need.

From Danielle, myself, and our boys, and on behalf of the Parliament of Canada, I extend warm wishes for a very merry Christmas and a blessed 2024. May the spirit of the season fill your homes with joy, your hearts with peace, and your lives with the promise of better days ahead.
