On behalf of the University community, Royal News is pleased to wish a very Merry Christmas to you and your family. May this holiday season and new year bring peace and joy.
Moonless darkness stands between.
Past, the Past, no more be seen!
But the Bethlehem-star may lead me
To the sight of Him Who freed me
From the self that I have been.
Make me pure, Lord: Thou art holy;
Make me meek, Lord: Thou wert lowly;
Now beginning, and alway:
Now begin, on Christmas day.
– Gerard Manley Hopkins, S.J.
