Today, I wake up to a very quiet Christmas day. I feel grateful that God has blessed me this day with so much peaceful solitude. Truly, He gives not like the world gives! Jesus said “I do not give to you as the world gives.” in John 14:27. Ironically, that contrast is most evident during the Christmas season.

I wish everyone a very merry Christmas in the Lord.

‘For the sake of His sorrowful Passion have mercy on us and on the
‘Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal One, have mercy on us
and on the whole world’.
