Is there room at your Inn? Christmas Eve Reflection
Irish tradition says that the Holy Family still travel throughout the world this night seeking shelter…
Is there room for them at your inn?
at my inn?
Can you see them pass by?
Joseph lost in thought…
Mary tired and heavy with child…
Can you see their eyes looking out at you from the eyes of
the victim of war,
the one you have already judged,
the one I have already judged…
If you would recognise them
let your hands unclench,
of your soul…
As the old poem put it…
“Often, often, often
goes the Christ
in the stranger’s guise”…
