A very Happy Christmas to everyone on Box Hill

I love this year’s Christmas Stamps with their variations on the depiction of the Madonna and child through art history.

In some pictures, the child Jesus looks to his mother for comfort, for reassurance, for love – a child like any other.

In others, the infant Christ looks out to the world offering comfort, and reassurance and love – a child like no other.
