Dear friends, at this stage in the festive month Christmas begins to occupy more and more of our waking thoughts - there is no doubt it is 'the most wonderful time of the year.' It is a time of gift giving and receiving. But we are also called to remember those of our friends and family where this time is difficult. We share a thought with you today from an image and quote of Pope Francis at the crib about God's greatest gift to us all - the gift of Christmas. Blessings
