New Year Greeting 2016

As my social media feed fills with New Year greetings I add my best wishes to the litany of optimism. This post is coming to you from the beautiful Fraser Coast bathed in glorious morning sunshine.

January 1st is also significant day for Catholic boys like myself as it once celebrated our common roots with Judiasm. Before Vatican II scorched a colourful calendar this day was the feast of the circumcision of the Lord. 

Now circumcision barsly makes it onto the scrabble board much less theological discourse. So for your edification and acknowledgement of this anniversary I offer this post published a few years ago.
