In this video message, Archbishop Smith reflects on the important of family at Christmas. "Families can be the source of great security and peace, of joy and laughter," he says. "Families can sometimes be the scene where there are more difficult moments, at times heart-breaking moments, but into each and every family, Jesus wants to be born. So the message for Chrismas, as we hear this cry "Christ is born for us," let us remember that Jesus wants to be born again in the hearts of every one of our families."
