How can we reach the pinnacle of our journey?

Christians in Baghdad remain defiant as they flock to their services in areas that are controlled by the Islamic State. They face many dangers when they do something as simple as going to a mass. To many, Christmas is the pinnacle of a journey of self-discovery. The birth of the Christs is, in many ways, a representation of the rebirth of the human spirit, the bringing back to our roots of what really matters most to our life. From this point, we can work in a better way to the pinnacle of our journey. We should not lose our focus as we look at our journey again and work in a better way towards the goal that we all strive for in our life. I cannot tell you what you have to do to reach this pinnacle, but focus is important as we look to this day and to the new year.
