Letter from Father Richard
Christmas is always a magical time.
I don’t mind the commercialisation; it is part of what makes it magical. People say that we are in danger of leaving Christ out of Christmas. Commercialisation or not, we are always in danger of leaving Christ out of Christmas.
He has come not only to seek a home, a welcome among His own (humankind), but also a welcome into our hearts.
Let us not forget to entertain Him in prayer, in response to those less well off than ourselves, and in those around us.
If we have nothing else to give one another, let it be a kind word, an acknowledgement of the other’s existence. Even today, it is a season of goodwill.
