“Mary Bursting” from Douglas Jones

Posted by Chris

May I direct your attention to this fine piece by Douglas Jones over at Credenda/Agenda:

Mary Bursting

A brief excerpt:

“Christmas is impossible. It can’t be done. That woman won’t be silent. It can’t be expressed. Encapsulate all the colors, meanings, music, and history of World War II into one sentence, commas permitted. Now do it with a far more earth-shattering, far more complicated, more unspeakable event. That’s the tension of Christmas….”
