I hope everyone (anyone?) who reads this blog has a very happy holy
Christmas 2006 and much good fortune and peace in 2007.
On this Christmas Eve, the world is looking in a decidedly negative
shape. Presidents and prime ministers in the West are
looking less and less like leaders who seek to
inspire the people to put the
message of Christmas into practice, with the humility and
insight of Kings Balthasar, Melchior and Caspar
but more and more with the self centredness and arrogance of
King Herod, of old.
Maybe we the people, need to inspire our leaders
so that love and compassion flow from the people upwards
rather than looking to such enfeeebled leaders, to guide
us through their example.
