Merry Christmas to all, and Happy New Year!
If you are warm, pray for those who are cold.
If you have plenty to eat and drink, pray for those who hunger and thirst.
If you know not the ravages of war, pray for those who know them.
If you have family and friends, pray for those who have none.
If you are free, pray for the oppressed and imprisoned.
Think of a little baby long ago. Perhaps the baby Jesus in the stable. I am thinking of Christmas 1841, of great-grandfather Ole, two weeks old, and of his mother, spending the holiday in Olso Prison.
May all of these, and all the world, be uplifted by the message of Peace on Earth, and goodwill to everyone on it.
