In this hard year filled with loss, grief and separation, we still hear the songs of the angels as they proclaimed Christ’s birth to the shepherds outside of Bethlehem. And those songs are a consolation right now. Life will conquer death, joy will conquer despair. Because Christ came, we shall live and have life abundantly.
Because our cousins the angels find such joy in our salvation, perhaps this year, we can be inspired by them and find strength to move forward in hope that the time of separation is coming to an end.
