The Field at Home, Vol. 10

Excerpt from The Field at Home, Vol. 10: January, 1934-October, 1934 Vividly before the young priest's eyes was the picture of that first Christmas Night. From a heart overflowing with devotion he prayed: Dear Infant Jesus - Godot my soul - give me the grace to bring some straying soul to the love of Thy Sacred Heart this day. On Your Birthday I bring the best I have my whole heart's love - give me, in return, the con solation of helping another heart to love Thee. The Happy Feast wore on, with its: usual, light hearted festivity. Seated in his study that evening, Father Gordon reviewed the day. Yes, he had had a Happy Christmas, but away in the inner recess of his heart there was a disappointment. The Gift he had requested of His Divine Master at Midnight Mass had not come to him. Doubtless he was not worthy. But, then, worthiness was not and never could be the measure of Divine generosity in dealing with poor human beings. Had he failed to recognize the Gift? Had it come and passed him by? He pondered these questions anxiously. The shrill peal of the telephone broke in on his troubled questioning. Hello! Yes, Fat-her Thomas. Do you want them to-night? Father Gordon glanced at the clock (it was All right, then, first thing in the morning. Hanging up the receiver he prepared to retire. Strange that Father Thomas should ring up at such an hour and for such an insignificant thing as head ache tablets. Now that he cc-sui-dered the matter, there had been a tinge of disappointment in the old priest's voice at the suggestion of waiting until morn ing. Perhaps the dear old man was suffering. Fa ther Gordon paused in the act of drawing off the last sock, as a thought came to him: Perhaps this is the Gift!
