“Joy and Hope and Happy Christmas Memories”

Bishop Kevin Farrell has written a lovely piece entitled “Joy and Hope and Happy Christmas Memories”  which reminds us of the happiness Christmas is capable of bringing, and of our happy childhood Christmas memories.  He opening paragraph reads,

Most of our Christmas memories come from our youth, probably because so many of them are centered on family. Midnight Mass, Christmas dinner, aunts and uncles and cousins, grandma’s favorite dish lovingly prepared and shared every year. For most of us our childhood was a time of unbridled joy, uncomplicated by the mysteries of adolescence or the responsibilities of adulthood.

Farrell’s article is intelligent and insightful; just reading it evokes pleasant childhood memories of Christmas and a sense of hope.
