MEMO TO :  THE UNIVERSITY COMMUNITY

RE : CHRISTMAS MESSAGE 2017


Christmas, as many of us now know it, is a time of celebration, gift-giving and feasts.  The first Christmas, however, is about the struggles and sacrifices of Mary and Joseph to prepare for the birth of Jesus, our Savior.   Let us, then,  celebrate Christmas not only as a time to rejoice with family and friends, but also as a time to reconnect with God and reflect on the ultimate sacrifice of His son, Jesus Christ as the embodiment of His unending mercy and love for us. 

 

As President, I feel continually blessed and deeply grateful for so many reasons: the AdZU men and women of the academic, social development, formation and central services units whose loyalty and hard work maintain our brand of excellence; the parents of our students  and the alumni whose  support and cooperation inspire us in our programs and projects; and our benefactors and friends  whose generosity  sustains our drive to carry on with our University’s mission.

 

Thus, I take this opportunity to thank everyone for your magis and animo in your work, and  your  cura personalis for the University and for one another which made 2017 a good year for us despite the many challenges. 

 

During this time of faith, family, and festivities, I  invite our community members to live out the true meaning of Christmas by offering prayers for the families and loved ones of those afflicted with illnesses and those affected by conflicts and disasters, and to reach out and extend to them whatever assistance we can afford. 

 


Felices Pascua y Prospero Año Nuevo!
