Merry Christmas to all my readers and their families! May you enjoy the season surrounded by your loved ones.
The power is there to make us different than we are; it is for our freedom to decide if we will respond, and if we are willing to pay the price of having the dross burned off the gold in the flames of love. Let it not be said by anyone, “I am too foul; I am a beast; I am not worthy to be lifted up.” It was to assure just such persons as these that He was born in a stable, and on His first night in this world companioned with beasts.
-Fulton Sheen, ‘The True Meaning of Christmas’
