A very blessed and Merry Christmas to everyone!
If as St. Maximilian Kolbe wrote, "the cross is the school of love", then Christmas is an invitation to learn to love. Christmas is our grammar school where we begin to learn to love, where we begin a road from Christmas blessing to Easter joy. And as we begin this Christmas season, we are invited into the stable with the Holy Family to learn their lessons of love -- for God, for each other, for family, for the smallest and poorest among us. May this season be filled with God's love for you and with love for each other.
Marvin Max kindly gave me the last word for this year at his new podcast: Source and Summit. The latest is episode 7, and my full Christmas message takes up the last 3 minutes.
God bless & have a wonderful Christmas season! It's only just beginning!
