'Twas The Week Before Christmas when all through the salon The scissors were clicking; the mad rush was on. The hairdressers were busy primping the coifs; Perm odor, tinting, hair spray-- what cough? The nail-techs stayed sitting; painting their art, And the patrons were in and out like a dart. The receptionist was praying for the end of the day, While just out the window she noticed a sleigh. And in walked a lady all covered in flour; She said she'd been baldng for hours and hours. "l've seen to the children, but what of myseljP "My husband's been busy and couldn't spare an elf. "My nails are all broken; my hair feels like glue; "I hope there is someone who can make me feel new." With that gleam in her eye it was hard to say "no" -- Mary volunteered for the job -- he, he, hol Shampoo, shampoo, how do you do? Rollers and gel -- need the" dryer too. With a trick of her brash she was coiffed in a flash; Manicured, painted, and dried in a dash. Her nails were all shiny -- painted "jungle-red." The smile on her face left nothing unsaid. As she waved us good-bye, Merry Christmas to all, Everyone stopped to see the great haul. While out the window we all began to peer At a giant sleigh and eight strong reindeer!

Saint John of the Cross by Bennett Molinari and Richard Molinari ther gave up wealth, status, and comfort when he mar- ried a weaver's daughter and was disowned by his noble family. After his father died, his mother kept the desti- tute family together as they wandered homeless in search of work. John was sent to the school for the poor at Medina del Campo, where the fam- ily had gone to live, and h~ proved to be a good student. He worked for seven years in a hospital for the poor while attending a school estab- lished by the Jesuits. John was inspired in prayer to serve God in a religious or- der that he would reform. He joined the Carmelites and received the habit on Febru- ary 24, 1563, taking the name John of St. Matthias. After profession he ob- tained permission from his superiors to follow to the let- ter the original Carmelite rule without the modifica- tions that had accumulated through the years. He was sent to Salamanca for the studies, and was ordained a priest in 1567. Shortly after his ordination, he considered joining the Carthusians, however, be- fore taking any further ac- tion he made the acquain- tance of St. Teresa, who had come to Medina to fund a convent of nuns, and who persuaded him to remain in the Carmelite Order and to assist her in the establish- ment of a monastery of Discalced Carmelite friars at Duruelo, Spain based on the ancient rule.
