Christmas Day 2015

A Christmas Thought
Every  year at this time
we are asked to escape from the tumult
of our hearts to put aside
our weighty cares
and leave our wearisome toil,
to enter for a while
into the inner chamber of our souls,
to listen to God’s Word.
The Word—calling us through  the
mist of ignorance and apathy to
Be silent—listen to the sound of stillness,
and to see in the Child born of Mary
the word who became flesh.                     (Cardinal Basil Hume)

May the spirit of Christmas which is Peace
The gladness of Christmas which is Hope
The heart of Christmas which is Love
Fill our hearts and homes this Christmas

May the birth of Jesus dispel all darkness,
May the compassion of Jesus embrace all hearts,
May the peace of Jesus inspire all minds,
May the presence of Jesus fill the earth,
and may the promise of God be fulfilled:
God, in us and with us, now and forever.
