A Blessed Christmas!

                                                           ~by Fr. Polykarp Uehlein, OSB
The love that descended to Bethlehem is not

the easy sympathy of an avuncular God,

but a burning fire whose light chases away every shadow,

floods every corner, and turns midnight into noon.

This love reveals sin and overcomes it.

It conquers darkness with such forcefulness and intensity

that it scatters the proud,

humbles the mighty,

feeds the hungry,

and sends the rich away empty-handed (Luke 1:51-53).

                                                                 ~ Charles Moore
