There is precisely enough time right now for three full breaths… in.. and out… before the holiday frenzy descends in earnest, in its relentless determination to infiltrate our psyches, and corrupt our souls.
Please join me in a moment of sincere prayer:
Dear Holy Baby Jesus, with your bright blue eyes and shiny disposition,
We beseech thee… help us survive another season of mass consumerism. Please strengthen our minds and wills so we may maintain our fragile sanity through all the various renditions of “Jingle Bell Rock.”
