Ask any postal clerk or card store salesman. December is the month of “greetings” Christmas greetings, Hanukkah greetings,
Season’s greetings, New Year’s greetings.
St. Francis had a greeting, too, one delivered by God Himself.
In his Testament, the little Poor Man wrote:
The Lord Himself gave me this greeting that we were to say:
this is the best greeting we could exchange in the season of Incarnate
Gift reminds us that
peace is the image and fruit of the PEACE OF CHRIST,
So when we mail our Christmas greeting cards, or wish one another
Let us join in the angels’
of praise at the birth of Christ…
PEACE on earth to those on whom God’s favor
