“ye who now will bless the poor…”

Dear friends,

Merry Christmas! The message of the Wenceslas carol is dear: “ye who now will bless the poor shall yourselves find blessing.”

As I consider what blessings we receive and what blessings we can give, I remember the words of Jesus: “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of Heaven.” The teachings of Jesus remind us how to care for those around us, the poor in circumstance and the poor in spirit alike.

May you find blessings of peace and joy this season, and may you share those blessings with others.
