Weekly Reflection

Dear San Domenico,

In 1861, the poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow was filled with sorrow at the tragic death of his wife. The Civil War broke out the same year. And two years later Longfellow learned that his own son had been wounded in the Army of the Potomac. Sitting down at his desk, one Christmas Day, he heard the church bells ringing. And he knew that there was still hope.

I heard the bells on Christmas Day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet
The words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men!

Till, ringing, singing on its way,
The world revolved from night to day,
A voice, a chime,
A chant sublime
Of peace on earth, good will to men!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
