Fresco painting by Beato Angelico, “Nativity”
Today is a beautiful, bright and clear day – not one cloud in a quiet, sunny sky – and this day is peaceful, still and meaningful.
Wishing you a wonderful and Merry Christmas, this year as always.
This day is not about what goods and merchandise we receive or gave, but an offering of freedom from the burden of all that weight (*) — weight, as in, burdens, worries, concerns — that we might lay it down and accept ‘other measures’.
(*) Eggnog and lazing around in the pajamas as long as possible excepted.
‘Glitter’ hides meaning of Christmas, Pope says
