Signing off for Christmas

What can we say on the eve of this special Feast, cherished all over the world by so many! That the infinite God should have taken finite human flesh, a fact so impossible to comprehend for human minds! In moments of doubt, my own thoughts turn for encouragement to the thought of the vast array of those who have cherished this revelation - and so many saints among them. A host of wonderful lives directed and inspired by the Christ who was born into poverty to share our human lot - not least among them our magnificent Carmelite saints! Superlative guides to the meaning of the Incarnation! Hallelujah!

This will probably be the last blog until the New Year, so a Happy Christmas to one and all!
