Merry one!

The upcoming Christmas, the symbol of the Incarnation, again situates us back to the centre of history past and future. The Creation anticipated the Incarnation, the Incarnation anticipated the Resurrection, and the Resurrection is now anticipating the renewed-Creation: The past, present, and future. The Incarnation is the 'present', thus it is a 'gift'. A gift of renewal, recalling, and re-alive. It's like the first dawn in an ever darkened night, or the first sip of water after an ever thirsty noon.

"Word of the Father, now in flesh appearing; O come, let us adore him, o come, let us adore him, o come, let us adore him, Christ the Lord." (extract from 'O Come all ye faithful')

Indeed, Christmas is telling... So may you have a merry one.
