Poem: From “Christmas Is for Healing” by Macrina Wiederkehr, OSB

If you can trust Jesus enough to
walk out on the waters of getting involved,
of washing feet and anointing people,
of breaking bread and working miracles,
I am almost sure his saving presence
will touch those blind and crippled parts of your life
and Christmas will come to you.

More than anything else
I want to give you Christmas this year
It’s a gift, an offer
You can take it if you like
but I can’t really give it to you
like a wrapped up package.
It is deeper than that,
It is warmer, brighter, holier.
It is more personal.
Christmas is more challenging
than a wrapped up package.

It is an offer
It is a mystery
It is birth
It is hope
It is Christmas and
God can never be born enough …

This offer will not be canceled in case of snow!
