Blessings for Christmas, Peace in the New Year



Consider the images.

John the Baptist proclaims: “In the desert, prepare the way of the Lord.”

Christ is born in a cave, in a stable.

How unfitting for the Savior of the World!

Yet, despite our unworthiness, despite our incompleteness, despite our divisions, God is incarnated among us, Jesus is born as God with us, and calls us all to worship Him.

May you all have a blessed Christmas. I am grateful for the many ways in which many of you have been Christ to me this past year.

Peace for the new year.

And I am grateful to have made your blog acquaintance in 2005. I look forward to following your journey in 2006 and deepening that acquaintance. A blessed Christmas to you as well Mark, and all God's best for the coming year.
Peace

Mark -- greetings from Hong Kong. Merry Christmas! Was in Macau yesterday -- which, as you know, has strong Jesuit connections. Prayed for you at Midnight Mass at the Cathedral there (and for all my other SJ friends as well).

Peace, G
