Christmas Tree Decorations

Aren’t these just the best thing for hanging on the tree? Who wants to buy me one?

The top-ranking clergymen in the Church of England will be hanging on Christmas trees all across the realm this year. The gift and souvenir company St Nicolas has produced miniature versions of Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams and Archbishop of York John Sentamu to be used as Yuletide decorations. As the image at right indicates, the resemblance is imaginary slight.

Augustine of Hippo
Merciful Lord, who turned Augustine from his sins to be a faithful bishop and teacher: grant that we may follow him in penitence and discipline till our restless hearts find their rest in you; through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.

Two Final Things

Aber mit der Heimat
geht man immer herum,
durch die Welt,
dort und dort
Peter Handke

No one could describe
the Word of the Father;
but when He took flesh from you, O Theotokos,
He consented to be described, and restored the fallen image to its former beauty.
We confess and proclaim our salvation in word and image.
