'What is really important to us? What do we hold dear?'

Archbishop Hart

"Like Mary, the mother of Jesus when she heard the shepherds, we, too, need to stop, ponder, and pray this Christmas. What is really important to us, what do we hold dear?" asks the Archbishop of Melbourne, Denis Hart, in his Christmas message.

"Life is always moving. We must never have the illusion that it is standing still.

"A good question to ask is not whether my life is moving but where is it going?

"Is it towards God or away from God?

"If we examined our hearts are we glad for the good things we did this year - for poor people, for hurt people?
