December 23, 2007 – December 24, 2007  Charles Dickens lamented, “ Would that the spirit of Christmas could live within our hearts every day of the year? ”

Perhaps the Christmas spirit is our souls ' knowledge that things, no matter how beautiful, are only things; that we were created, not always to do, but sometimes simply to be. Perhaps the Christmas spirit is a loving reminder that we must make time for the long slow journey across the desert; we must take time to discover our own star; we must honour the time necessary to brood over the coming of the authentic self we were created to become. So this is my Christmas wish for all of us: that behind the toys, tinsel, carols, cards and chaos, there will come a moment of quiet reflection and peace. That it may be truly said of each of us that we know how to keep Christmas well. Sarah Ban Breathnach
