May the Bethlehem-star lead us...

Moonless darkness stands between.
Past, the Past, no more be seen!
But the Bethlehem-star may lead me
To the sight of Him Who freed me
From the self that I have been.
Make me pure, Lord: Thou art holy;
Make me meek, Lord: Thou wert lowly;
Now beginning, and alway:
Now begin, on Christmas day.   
Gerard Manley Hopkins SJ

Christmas greetings from the Ignatian family in the UK,
and prayers and good wishes for every blessing
in the New Year

May the Bethlehem-star lead us all to the sight of Him who freed us all
