Each year I try to write a Christmas message to share with our Straight & Narrow and Catholic Charities friends. My Message this year is based on a fictional story of the fourth wise man. Though it is a work of fiction I believe it has a powerful message. It suggests that everyone of us is that fourth wise man; that everyone of us is invited to bring our savior a gift; that everyone of us will be provided a star to show us the way; that the journey will be long and we will encounter distractions; that if we are persistent we will find our savior; that He will accept our gift and in so doing He will say to us "come blest of My Father into the kingdom prepared for you".
Have a joy-filled and blessed Christmas
