"If we want to find the God who appeared as a child, then we must dismount from the high horse of our “enlightened” reason. We must set aside our false certainties, our intellectual pride, which prevents us from recognizing God’s closeness. We must follow the interior path of Saint Francis – the path leading to that ultimate outward and inward simplicity which enables the heart to see."
-- Pope Benedict XVI, December 24, 2011
I wish you and yours a very blessed Christmas. May the gift of faith be with you and yours throughout the New Year.
