O come let us adore Him...
One of the scouts who helped us decorate was taken at the appearance of "flaming straw" around Baby Jesus and commented about it (more than once) to Father, who finally said, "Yes, He is burning with love for you.....are you on fire with love for Him?" And that was part of the homily tonight. Another point, was that straw is rather useless material. Our lives are like the straw, waiting for Jesus to rest in the "stuff" of our lives.
