DowneastBlog wishes all its readers of good will a Merry Christmas!!!

The Adoration of the Kings, By Gerard David (ca 1460-1523)

There is an awful lot of misery in the world, and you may want to pray for two groups in particular, namely Mozambique's Christians (of whom around 50 were beheaded by Islamic State-affliliated groups last month), and their Nigerian brethren and sisters, who suffer terribly under attacks by muslim Fulani terrorists.

And even though their plight far surpasses that of those hapless truckers stuck in the UK, you may also want to save a prayer or two for them. They have barely water, food or sanitary provisions. What a sad Xmas:

Good night.
