Christmas Greetings


St Francis, in Deacon's vestments, places the Child in the crib at Greccio (Giotto, in the upper church, Assisi)

 'I will make myself a poor little unworthy servant and, as though present, look upon them [Jesus, Mary and Joseph], contemplate them and serve them in their needs with all possible homage and reverence.' (Ignatius Loyola, The Spiritual Exercises #114)

'I've taken my place among you as the one who serves' (Luke 22:27, The Message)

Every blessing to you for Christmas, and for 2012 (which will bring the 25th anniversary of my ordination as Deacon)
