Take me where
you want me to go,
Let me meet
who you want me to meet,
Tell me what
you want me to say,
And keep me out of your way.
(Revd Mychal Judge OFM

I wonder how much we really look forward to Christmas? Honestly now?! I can see some wry grins… I didn’t think so. You’re possibly not the only ones! Preparations. Hard work. A mad gallop of events to cram into the diary, … Continue reading
