From the Sisters of St. Joseph in Canada

When Jesus was born, I don't think Mary or Joseph thought about anything but the joy of having and holding the child. At that blessed midnight moment, the future did not exist: the rejection, betrayal, misunderstanding, the violence of scourging and crucifixion. There was only joy and gratitude. We all need times like that - midnight moments - when the wonder of the present fills our being and the past and future cease to exist. (Carmelites of Indianapolis, Hidden Friends, p. 15)

This Christmas,

May God's blessing of Joy satisfy your heart.

May God's blessing of Peace quiet you soul.

May God's blessing of Love refresh your spirit.

May all the blessings given to us in Christ fill your Christmas and the coming year with many reasons for rejoicing.
