Christmas Reflection

And is it true?  And is it true?

These lines from John Betjeman’s wonderful poem on Christmas resonate somewhere in the hearts of all people who experience the Christmas Story either as believer or bystander.

And is it true?  And is it true?
The most tremendous tale of all,
A Baby in an ox’s stall
The Maker of the stars and seas
Become a child on earth for me?

At Christmas we celebrate the birth of God made man in the Christ Child who made us in love and who lives his life by loving us.  His life among us gives us a pattern for our lives and a true reason to celebrate.

A happy and blessed Christmas to all our readers.
