Merry Christmas from the USCCA

Friends in Christ:

May the Holy Family teach us love and understanding through the mystery of the Incarnation!

This painting, entitled "Nativity" (circa 1940s), was painted by Chinese artist Luke Chen (1902-1967). He painted traditional Catholic images in a traditional Chinese style.

"Nativity" was presented as a gift to Passionist Cuthbert O'Gara, (1886-1968), missionary to China and Bishop of Yuanling, Hunan, China (1934-1968). The Passionist China Collection has kindly granted us permission to include it here.

As we celebrate the birth of Jesus, we wish you and your loved ones a joyful Christmas.


All of us at the USCCA
