Merry Christmas!

I want to wish all of my readers a very blessed and very Merry Christmas! The most beautiful feast of the year, at the start of the liturgical year-- and arriving none-too-soon at the end of a very trying secular year. Beyond all hope, Hope Himself is born for us. I will remember your intentions at Midnight Mass. 

Our Lord loves us! He is born in Bethlehem!

Gloria in excelsis Deo! Et in terra pax hominibus bonae voluntatis!

If I had a big house
As a rule-of-thumb
At Christmas I'd have loved-ones
And others if they'd come.

If I had a big house
A cupboard warm and round
Would feed my Christmas guests
The staff of life here found.

If I had a big house
All men I would let in
At Christmas shed their burdens
Learn losses can be wins.

If I had a big house
All Christmas linens laced
And men who came to visit
Would yield a certain grace.

But I don't need a big house
I'm in the biggest home
Where hindered senses are enhanced
By way of Christmas-Rome.

For Christmas-Rome's eternal
Shall not be bought or sold
And yule-logs in perpetuum
Glow red fore Christmas-gold!!

Merry Christmas, Timman & to your whole family!

How did you not post that absolutely awful treacle, "Two Christmases?" A true Christmas miracle! Thank you!
