Here’s the song reference.
Our parish Christmas pageant was last night, and Bugaboo was a perfectly lovely angel. Nonno was unable to attend, but Zio Frankie (Manie’s brother) stayed with Nonno so Deedaw could attend. Grandma came down from Baltimore, too, and spent the afternoon with us.
Words are not coming easily to me this morning, so I’ll share some recent videos of our merry band, including two videos of the pageant (I apologize for the quality), and a couple of our favorite Christmas songs. May the peace of Our Lord be with all of you, always.
Christmas pageant, part 1 — Bugaboo is the angel who has wings.
Today’s prayer: Lord, thank You for the gentle men and women who give of their time to teach Your little blessings about You, and about Your message of redemption and everlasting joy with You. As so many of us grieve, or prepare to grieve, the end of mortal lives, please take our grief as an offering and replace it with hearts brimming with the happiness of sure knowledge that the souls of our beloveds will rest joyously with You. Please help us teach Your blessings and each other to love one another as You have loved us, filling us with the desire to do as Your servant Francis instructed, that we may be a beacon leading those who suffer under heavy burdens to You for comfort and for rest.
