A Child is Born: Poems of Christmas
by Msgr. Thomas Raby
In 1967 beloved columnist Msgr. Tom Raby penned his first Christmas poem and launched a December tradition that would delight readers of The Catholic Register until 2004. For almost four decades the Christmas poems of Fr. Raby were as much a part of the season as the angel atop the tree.
Now for the first time all 37 of those poems have been collected in a book of verse that will fill hearts with joy and fit easily in a Christmas stocking.
A Child is Born: Poems of Christmas is a celebration of the faith, joy and peace of Christmas written in a style sure to entertain readers of all ages.
The poems of Fr. Raby were eagerly awaited because they went to the heart of what Christmas is really about. His verse ignores the secular adornments of Christmas to proclaim the birth of Christ with wonder and awe, faith and prayer, peace and goodwill, joy and good humour.
For almost 50 years, Fr. Raby wrote a popular weekly column for the Register called “The Little World of Fr. Raby.” Health problems caused him to stop writing in 2007 and now, at 92, he lives in Kingston, Ont. A year ago The Register published an anthology of the best of “The Little World of Fr. Raby.”
