The other day, as I was just waking up, I said, “Merry Christmas, Lord!” It was a quirky thing to do. I had never wished Jesus a merry Christmas. The things one does when half-awake!
Quite unexpectedly, the Lord replied! He said, “I Am Christmas.” True enough, right? So a merry Christmas to all of you from Christmas Himself.
Hail, hail the Word made flesh! The babe, the Son of Mary (from “What Child Is This”)
