With Christmas on a Saturday in the western calendar, we have lost Good King Wenceslas going out on the feast of Stephen. But perhaps very appropriately this year for the day after Christmas, we celebrate the Holy Family.
This is the ornament we found in the bookstore of the Abbey of Gethsemani in Kentucky. Ceramic painted with a "patented needle technique," it comes from artists in Uzbekistan. Our habit has been to buy a Christmas ornament during our summer travels, usually in the Upper Peninsula. This is an exception to that rule.
