Come to know His face...

 "Wherever God is , there is heaven, a fullness of glory. 
We need no wings, only a place of silence where we can be alone
and center our gaze on the Guest within." - St Teresa of Avila (16th c.)

“Above all else, this is what Christmas bids us to do: 
Give glory to God, for He is good, He is faithful, He is merciful. 
Today I voice my hope that every one will come to know
the true face of God, the Father who has given us Jesus. 
My hope is that everyone will feel God’s closeness,
live in His presence, love Him and adore Him.”

Pope Francis
