LITTI,E ROCK -- The Secular Carmelites of Ann of St. Bartholomew will meet at the home of AI and Grace Wrape, 1006 North Monroe, gives way to John's Gospel where the evangelist tries valiantly to grasp the larger meaning: "In the beginning was the Word." EACH OF us hears a bit of this: And it is enough for the day. But that is exactly why Christmas makes itself into a season. We need time to savor what we have believed, to see it from some other sides, to find, with each Christ- mistime, ourselves within it.

We know what story to expect, the Magi, but we also hear hints of what will YET FROM Christmas to Epiphany and beyond, we learn how to praise and give thanks for such a savior. We need to give ourselves the time: to keep the tree and its story-telling decorations; to read over and over the early chapters of Matthew and Luke and the prologue to John's Gospel; to sing carols and Christmas hymns; to prolong the exchange of gifts by giving to those around us our time (for once-a-year adventures and just for listening so we get to know spouses and children again).
