I am a bit late to share Good Tidings, starting on December 6, St Nicholas Day, there are so many reasons to celebrate this special season. For one thing, today is the birthday of Thomas Merton, who lived nearby us at Abbey of Gethsemani. This prayer of his has been a helpful reflection.
It is also Emily Dickenson’s Birthday. This year the Geminid Meteor showers are on the 13th.
