After Mass at Night, Mass at Dawn

As mentioned in a previous post, no Masses at the Church for various and sundry reasons. Grrr. However, Mass in the rectory chapel very much makes me feel like the donkey-priest near the manger in the cave, you know, hidden with Christ in God.

Meanwhile, a water main break in town. Meanwhile, the arsonist is back at it with some houses going up in flames over the past weeks, and, yes, just the other day. Proven as arson. Meanwhile, a gunshot after midnight last night, Christmas night, in back of the neighborhood, and then a very loud truck racing away.

Jesus came among us useless and violent lot because God loved the world so much that He sent His only begotten Son among us, His Eternal Word now Incarnate of the Immaculate Virgin Mother of God. We sing with the angels: Glory to God in the Highest!

    Ah, yes. The pax Romana. I’m beginning to understand. The gated communities of the elite are another example. Goodness me, do I sound like a murmurer and scoffer?

    Merry Christmas Father George,
    It seems like there’s never a dull moment in your little town.
    Prayers for your safety, health and happiness.
