Looking Forward

The headlines of the past year suggest few accomplishments toward peace and for the progress of humans. Yet accom-plishments toward human progress were made. The Catholic Near East Welfare Association names a few it made in 2011 with the help of its friends. People chose to make those and other accomplishments happen. See the day-after-Christmas-CSM post, “The (surprisingly upbeat) state of the world,” for a larger perspective.

Personal responsibility to act in ways consonant with peace one day at a time is a fine resolution for anyone. For Christians it is the Christmas vocation. The anthem, “Before the Marvel of This Night,” reminds that people the bear the message today that heavenly messengers first proclaimed.
