Merry Christmas from the Editors of America

For many of us, Christmas is a time of homecoming, a tradition Mary and Joseph would have appreciated. Road-worn travelers and far-flung families come together under the same roof to celebrate together and to share their gifts. In a special way, this is also true for us at America Media this year. On Dec. 1, Cardinal Timothy Dolan, archbishop of New York, blessed our new home on the Avenue of the Americas. Gone are the packing boxes and ad hoc office arrangements; here for the future is our headquarters, under the patronage of St. Edmund Campion, S.J.

One of the many reasons we all appreciate our new home is the hard work and generosity that we know went into making it a reality. We at America Media are profoundly grateful to our readers, donors and supporters for sharing your gifts with us. Merry Christmas!
