May all the blessings of this Holy Feast be with you and your family today.
Christmas Day is a time to stop running on the treadmill of life and notice the world and the people around us as we spend precious moments with the ones we love.
But let us also remember those who won’t be enjoying today. This time of year can be particularly sad for many people: if you know someone in need of kindness, please do take the time to reach out with a phone call, email or even a text. This could make a massive difference to them today.
