QUOTE OF THE MOTH:

 

Sigrid Undset (20 May 1882-10June 1949)was a Norwegian novelist who was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1928.

 

"And when we give each other Christmas gifts in His name, let us remember that He has given us the sun and the moon and the stars, and the earth with its forests and mountains and oceans--and all that lives and move upon them.  He has given us all green things and everything that blossoms and bears fruit and all that we quarrel about and all that we have misused-- and to save us from our foolishness, from all our sins, He came down to earth and gave us Himself."
