Christmas Eve, Midnight Mass
May I speak in the name of the living God who is Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
Tonight we celebrate one of the greatest mysteries of all time.
And many of us will mark this mystery by the giving and receiving of gifts.
When you sit down to try think about what to get your friends, family and colleagues for Christmas you realise there’s one person it’s impossible to buy a present for, because they don’t really have interests or their interests are so obscure you have no idea what will please them.
