As I drove, my mood vacillating, listening to the radio, suddenly I stopped. Not literally, I continued driving, but my mind stopped, which is a miracle in and of itself. I stopped to think. The ‘experts’ claim that loneliness increases at Christmas, when we should be reminded that we are never alone. It’s not popular or politically correct to say so, but Christmas celebrates the fact that the God of the universe became flesh to be with us, to save us, to meet us here in our darkness and loneliness, in spite of what we’ve done or what we’ve become.
