mangerFrom all that has been read and will be said in churches everywhere as people come to celebrate the coming of the Christ child into the world, I choose to focus this morning on the Alleluia verse for the Mass during the day of Christmas.

A holy day has dawned upon us. Come, you nations, and adore the Lord. For today a great light has come upon the earth! Alleluia!

May this light be evident in our living, not only today but as we go forward into a new year. May this light be the light of peace and harmony, restoring a broken world and showing us how to better treat one another and ourselves in love and justice.

Blessings of Christmas to all!
