I would like to wish all my readers a happy Christmas by whatever way they choose to celebrate it.
Another year passes:
Hic praesens testatur dies,
currens per anni circulum,
quod a solus sede Patris
mundi salus adveneris.
Here in Normandy, we will be praying for peace in the world and for consolation of those whose have fled for their lives and lost everything. May our Christmas be true of heart and an expression of our love for God and neighbour.
I bid you all peace.

Preparing the chalice at Midnight Mass.
I have to admit that the queue looks odd with vestments! I had a congregation of four.
And peace to you, too, Father Anthony, and to all.
A blessed Christmas to you and your wife, Father.
