Why...can't we behave?

How are you with fidelity? Keeping friends? An ongoing prayer life? Stepping up to aid those in need? Hanging on to your spouse?

We like to contrast ourselves with others -- and usually, we do better. But let's face it, none of us are great at the commitment thang.

Yet God loves us -- in spite of all that we do to push God away. So...even if you are late for the manger again...even if you don't believe there was a manger before St. Francis of Assisi -- let's go to Bethlehem, or Nazareth, or North Philadelphia and see our Lord, in a manger laid. Maybe this time, we'll even be able to hear, faintly, those angelic choirs...
