Greetings of the Season!

“I salute you! There is nothing I can give you which you have not. But there is much that, while I cannot give, you can take. No heaven can come to us unless our hearts find rest in it today. Take heaven. No peace lies in the future which is not hidden in this our present instant. Take peace. The gloom of the world is but a shadow. Behind it, yet within our reach, is joy. Take joy. And so, at this Christmas time, I greet you with the prayer that for you, now and forever, the day breaks and the shadows flee away.”
~by Fra Giovanni (from a salutation to a friend, written in 1513)

Wishing you all a magical Holiday Season and a bright Happy New Year!
