Christmas: Sunday, December 25
Posted on December 25, 2016 by Sister Carol Perry

So they went with haste and found Mary and Joseph, and the child lying in the manger. – Luke 2:16

We are here, and whatever were the difficulties of the long journey, they are forgotten. We had a destination and we have reached it. And what do we find? Just a Child, the most helpless and vulnerable among us, born as we have all been born, but this little one does not even have a bed. When he is not in his parents’ arms, he lies on carefully piled straw in an animal’s feeding trough. He sleeps and we look on with love. This is a moment beyond words.

Our prayer is simply love.
