Christmas - a time for joy
The power of the unseen is greater than people can imagine.
Two thousand years ago a baby was born, a baby boy destined to become a religious leader, a dangerous man whose words could overturn the status quo. He had to be silenced. And like many others before and since he was tortured and killed.
His legacy was a simple message.
The message survived the Dark Ages and the Inquisitions and other trials and tribulations and its light was not extinguished.
Faith, Hope and Charity is quite a simple message. It is good to remind ourselves of the message from time to time. Christmas is such a time.
Regardless of one's belief or non-belief it is a blessing to mankind that such a man lived amongst us.
Here are some pictures taken last night in Vienna.
