Christmas Eve

While setting up the Christmas tree this year, I found the program to the Midnight Mass I attended at St.Olaf's Church in Minneapolis in 1985, the year my son was born...

In the beginning
was the Word;
the Word was in God's Presence,
and the Word was God.

He was present to God in the beginning.
Through him all things came into being,
and apart from him nothing came to be.

Whatever came to be in him, found life,
life for the light of men.
The light shines on in darkness,
a darkness that did not overcome it.

May this Sacred Season and its Silent Softness embrace you in the arms of the Christ Child.
