Now the work of Christmas begins! Holy Trivia!
As the Christmas season ends and we return to Ordinary Time, let the real work of Christmas begin!! This poem illustrates our mission perfectly.
Now the Work of Christmas Begins
by Howard Thurman
"When the song of the angels is stilled,
when the star in the sky is gone,
when the kings and princes are home,
when the shepherds are back with their flocks,
the work of Christmas begins:
to find the lost,
to heal the broken,
to feed the hungry,
to release the prisoner,
to rebuild the nations,
to bring peace among the people,
to make music in the heart."

Beloved, if God so loved us,
we also must love one another.
No one has ever seen God.
Yet, if we love one another, God remains in us,
and his love is brought to perfection in us. 1 John 4: 11-12
