This is the season of great rejoicing for a son is given to us, a child is born for us who is Christ the Lord. It is a day filled with so much joy that it needs an octave of days to celebrate! Wishing you all the inexhaustible joy of the Christmastide.

Words from Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen:

“One night there went out over the stillness of an evening breeze, out over the white chalk hills of Bethlehem, a cry, a gentle cry. The sea did not hear the cry, for the sea was filled with its own voice. The earth did not hear the cry, for the earth slept. The great men of the earth did not hear the cry, for they could not understand how a Child could be greater than a man.

“There were only two classes of men who heard the cry that night: Shepherds and Wise Men. Shepherds: Those who know they know nothing. Wise Men: Those who know they do not know eve- rything. The Shepherds found their Shepherd, and the Wise Men discovered Wisdom. And the Shepherd and the Wisdom was a Babe in a crib.”
