Invisible Dragons

With the shepherds, let us bow down before the Lamb, let us worship God’s goodness made flesh, and let us allow tears of repentance to fill our eyes and cleanse our hearts.  This is something we all need!

He alone, he alone can save us.  Only God’s mercy can free humanity from the many forms of evil, at times monstrous evil, which selfishness spawns in our midst.  The grace of God can convert hearts and offer mankind a way out of humanly insoluble situations.

Where God is born, hope is born.  He brings hope.  Where God is born, peace is born.

I taught my first grade students about the Invisible Dragon disguised as one's Self, who tries to put the "Y" first so it no longer spells "J O Y" --

--you must resist the lies of the Invisible Dragon and instead put Jesus first, and Others before Yourself last, if you wish to know joy.

Sometimes monstrous evil rises up, like in the Garden, when the nahash threatened Adam and Eve, and they listened to the lie instead of listening to God's will. It did not bring them joy.

When we follow the commands of Love, then we know joy.
