Seeing Haloes

Christmas is unavoidable. But if it is going to happen for us, we need to take time. We need to slow down and do something out of the ordinary, something that has to do with the spiritual meaning of the feast and the season. Reading the Christmas poems of Seeing Haloes is one way of doing this. John Shea hopes that each poem strikes a chord and brings us into memories we may have forgotten and present experiences we may have overlooked. When this happens, the Spirit arrives to illumine our minds, inspire our wills, and gladden our hearts. Christmas happens.

Praise

Shea’s common sense, humor, and masterful storytelling abilities combine to make his work a joy.
Bookviews
Shea's gift within these pages allows each of the many characters in the birth narratives in the gospels of Matthew and Luke to fascinate our imaginations and sooth our faith. Find your most comfortable chair, allow the music of the season to play in the background, pour yourself some warm apple cider, and allow Shea's work to speak to your mind and heart, revealing the joyful message of Emmanuel, God-with-us.
Fr. John Cusick, Archdiocese of Chicago
These wonder-filled poems dance in my soul, a reminder that the Christmas story always has more to tell us.
