On Christmas morning, on Christmas day we pray for gifts of home, food, family togetherness, good health, and heart-warming music for all, especially for those who have lost their homes and livelihoods, and those who find themselves far from home in a foreign war — may they all be never far from the peace of the Lord born this day in a lowly manger. In the new year may our faith and our works help bring shelter to those who have none. Peace to all.
Christmas card, 1958, from New Orleans Mayor DeLesseps S. ‘Chep’ Morrison.
