We have been summoned because the grace of God has appeared…in the form of an infant wrapped in swaddling clothes in a manger. Don’t just behold Him-- hold Him; hold the ones you love in an embrace, and the ones you cannot embrace very close to your heart, and let the presence of God hold you. (Bishop Coerver Midnight Christmas Homily, 2018)

Christmas is a time for turning the power of fear into the power of charity, into power for a new imagination of charity. The charity that does not grow accustomed to injustice, as if it were something natural, but that has the courage, amid tensions and conflicts, to make itself a ‘house of bread,’ a land of hospitality. (Pope Francis Christmas Vigil Mass, 2017)
