Saying farewell to readers
Christmas. When you say it, when you read it, do you feel the magic?
To many, it’s a time of gift giving, present wrapping, shopping, office parties, neighborhood parties and functions to attend. For some, it’s midnight mass, Holy Communion, reading the Christmas story with the family, making sure the birth of God in human form, Jesus, is remembered and celebrated, in the midst of all the other.
For many of us, it is a combination of the above two. However, as I get older, I believe that Christmas is a time to celebrate endings and beginnings. Bear with me and I’ll explain.
