"This, then is our desert:
to live facing despair,
but not to consent.
To trample it down under hope in the Cross.
To wage war against despair unceasingly.
That war is our wilderness.
If we wage it courageously,
we will find Christ at our side.
If we cannot face it,
we will never find him."

A few days early, I know, but 'Joyeux Noel!' to our friends in France, particularly those in the north who are suffering from the same sort of weather as we are and, of course, to those in the Vendee where the weather is (usually) kinder... a bientot!
