We Christians know that Christmas must take place in us. Our human nature is like a stable inhabited by the ox of passion and the ass of prejudice; animals that take up a lot of room and which most of us feed on the sly. But it is there, between them, pushing out, that Christ must be born and in their very manger he must be laid,-and they will be the first to fall on their knees before him.
We are all intended to be enkindled by the light Jesus brings; a light we need to pass on: a light this tired world needs to see.
Blessings at Christmas,
Father John Burkley & the Parish Staff
