Washington, 22 (NE) "This Christmas will be truly unique as together we observe the two thousandth anniversary of Christ's Birth in Bethlehem and begin to celebrate the Year of the Great Jubilee", wrote Bishop Paul S. Loverde of Arlington. Addressing faithful in his Christmas message published in the Catholic Herald's latest issue, the Prelate highlighted Pope John Paul II' special insistence to not forget the general theme of this Holy Year: "Open Wide the Doors to Christ: Evangelize, Reconcile and Celebrate!"
 "May we allow His Presence to permeate us so
completely that the witness of our lives will make clear the Good News of His love and foster reconciliation and unity", encouraged as well Arlington's Bishop. "May Christmas 1999 be for everyone a feast filled with light, the prelude to an especially deep experience of grace and divine mercy".
