Merry Christmas!

The Birth of Christ, Federico Barocci, 1597
And a Happy New Year! Thanks to everyone who has visited this blog in 2016~ I will pray for you all at Mass this Christmas Day. Please pray for me.
Welcome, all wonders in one sight!

       Eternity shut in a span;

Summer in winter; day in night;

       Heaven in earth, and God in man.

Great little one, whose all-embracing birth

Lifts earth to heaven, stoops heav’n to earth.
 ~  from "In the Holy Nativity of Our Lord" by Richard Crashaw
