Reflections Along the Jesus Way

December 28, 2023 – Quote for the Day:


“In his classic book, The Seven Story Mountain, Thomas Merton says this: ‘There were only a few shepherds at the first Bethlehem.  The ox and the ass understood more of the first Christmas than the high priests in Jerusalem.  And it is the same today.’

Thomas Merton was saying that many people experience the hoopla and excitement of Christmas, but fail to grasp its profound meaning… Experiencing Christmas is one thing, but grasping its far-reaching significance is yet another.”
