RNC Christmas Message
And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.
WASHINGTON – Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus and Co-Chairman Sharon Day share their Christmas message:
“Two millennia have passed since the holy night in Bethlehem, and today we rejoice yet again in the enduring good news of Christmas,” said Chairman Priebus. “We celebrate the humble birth of the Child who changed the world. We give thanks to the Lord who gives us hope. And we rejoice in the Savior whose message is love and peace.
“It’s my prayer that the joy of Christmas will fill our hearts and that the peace of Christ will fill our world. To all who are celebrating, I wish a Merry Christmas, blessed by the presence of family and loved ones.
“As we give thanks for our many blessings, we cannot forget those enduring hardships this Christmas. There are people hurting—in our neighborhoods, in our country, in our world—from hunger and loneliness, from turmoil and war. God showed his love for all on Christmas; let us show our love for our neighbors.”
“A very Merry Christmas to you and yours!” said Co-Chairman Day. “Like the shepherds who came to Bethlehem, we praise God for the good news. And like the wise men who came from the east, we endeavor to humble ourselves in the presence of the Prince of Peace. I hope the joy of Christmas remains with us long into the New Year.
“And, as always, may God bless the men and women of our military who are away from their families during this season. We’re thinking and praying for them and their loved ones, and we give thanks for their bravery and their sacrifice.”
