Merry Christmas to all in the Caminoheads world worldwide! It seemed hard fought this year but here we are once again, maybe not exactly bright eyed and bushy tailed but here nonetheless. Thinking of you wherever you are in our far flung neighborhood.
Know that you are loved and appreciated.
Here is a comment from Jim, Our Diego, in Lake Arrowhead, CA. Always good to hear from him and he brings some words from Pope Francis on top of that. What could go wrong? Here he is:
¡Feliz Navidad a Felipe, Rebecca y familia!
I think Pope Francis also had a Christmas message that echoed your notion of a “rare but potent” joy found in “places where we least expect it, where it is most needed, where we can’t miss it when it happens…”.
“In the Child of Bethlehem, God comes to meet us and make us active sharers in the life around us. He offers himself to us, so that we can take him into our arms, lift him and embrace him…. In this Child, God invites us to be messengers of hope. He invites us to become sentinels for all those bowed down by the despair born of encountering so many closed doors. In this child, God makes us agents of his hospitality….”
May you all at Ravens Ranch and the Caminoheads family continue to be active sharers in the life around us as messengers of hope and joyful agents of God’s hospitality.
¡Dios les bendiga peregrinos hermanos!
Well, that’s pretty darn good, don’t you think? We might be a ragtag bunch but at least we know what we are doing!
Potent loves, Felipé.
