Christmas Words of Wisdom

In response to yesterday's post, here are words from my very wise Zia Tiziana (translated from Italian) ...

I think about all the wars that are going on right now in which men, women and children are being killed in the name of religious extremism and of a God who, instead, wants love, peace and brotherhood.
 

The biggest mistake we make is to believe we are better than others and to close a door to those who don't think as we do.

John Paul II always said "Open your hearts", and with our hearts we need to open all those closed doors that distance us from others. No, the Grinch can't steal Christmas because Christmas is love and love can't be taken ... it can only be given.
