sigh no more

"Love; it will not betray you
dismay or enslave you, it will set you free
be more like the man you were made to be."
(Mumford & Sons, Sigh No More, 2009)
rereading past Christmas posts, here's a gem from Fr. Michael Newman, a fellow classmate:
"today we celebrate Christmas – the feast on which God in Jesus becomes one of us to set us free from all that chains and enslaves us and through his life and example to show us how to live as sons + daugthers of God in the world. in his Christmas homily in 1620 St. Francis de Sales spoke of Jesus as 'Love coming into the world to set us free.' this Love frees us from our past and leads us into the future of 2014. or, as stated in the song, this divine Love 'will not betray you, dismay or enslave you; it will set you free. be more like the man you were meant to be.'"
Merry Christmas!  Joyeux Noël!  union de prière.
