Reason for the Season


God never gives someone a Gift
they are not capable of receiving.
If He gives us a gift of 
Christmas,
it is because we all have
the ability to understand
and receive it.
Pope Francis

This is Christmas:
not the tinsel,

whom He created.

without whom all
Human Eloquence 
is mute.
