One of the Christmas songs playing on the radio in these days is called “Grown up Christmas list.” The singer says that the list is not for herself, but for a world in need. This list includes, “no more lives torn apart, that wars may never start…that right would always win.”
Christmas is a time for wishing for good things, because we know that God has given us His Son — and if he has gone that far, as St. Paul declares, how will he not give us everything else besides?
Let us increase our longing, then, that every life may be secure, safe from the violence of abortion and euthanasia, and from the ravages of poverty, crime, and war. Let us write our Christmas list with confidence.
