Quote from the Letter from Fra Giovanni to the Contessina, 1513 as published in The Home Book of Christmas:

“And so, at this Christmas time, I greet you; not quite as the world sends greetings, but with profound esteem, and with the prayer that for you, now and forever, the day breaks and the shadows flee away.”
