Merry Christmas!

For Christ is born of Mary,
And gathered all above,
While mortals sleep, the angels keep
Their watch of wondering love.
O morning stars, together
Proclaim the holy birth!
And praises sing to God the King,
And peace to men on earth.

How silently, how silently,
The wondrous gift is given!
So God imparts to human hearts
The blessings of his heaven.
No ear may hear his coming,
But in this world of sin,
Where meek souls will receive him, still
The dear Christ enters in.



Wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas.

    Is this website named after Friedrich Nietzsche’s famous quote? That would be odd

    • No, certainly not.:

      This blog’s name was taken from Pope John Paul the Great’s Apostolic Exhortation on the Role of Christian Families in the Modern World:



      Family, Become What You Are

      17. The family finds in the plan of God the Creator and Redeemer not only its identity, what it is, but also its mission, what it can and should do. The role that God calls the family to perform in history derives from what the family is; its role represents the dynamic and existential development of what it is. Each family finds within itself a summons that cannot be ignored, and that specifies both its dignity and its responsibility: family, become what you are.

      Nietzsche is quoted as saying ‘become who you are’ (though I do not know the context) not ‘become WHAT you are.’

      Merry Christmas

    Merry Christmas (belated) to you and your family!
    I’m just now catching up on my favorite blogs (and you know how neglected my blog is), so I’m a little late in saying that my thoughts and prayers are with you and your child in heaven. But it’s still coming from the heart.
    Love, peace, and joy!

    • I do, too! My oldest daughter always gets a little gift for me from the shop attached to the Christmas tree “farm” we go to to get our tree. That is what she got for me this year.
