Gospel Nugget 88: The Heat of His Face

This nugget comes to you from Erbil, Iraq, where I am visiting our brethren, especially those you have been helping start family businesses.  Every Advent different themes emerge and the image of the warmth and fire of Christ has struck me powerfully this year. The great Russian Orthodox Saint, Seraphim of Sarov, has some beautiful words to meditate on during this week, about the warmth of Christ's countenance driving out the cold of the devil.
