Thank God for Christmas! Thank God for Auberon Waugh! And thank you for printing his article of Dec, 7.

What a pity Mr. Waugh (December 7) should be so bitterly cynical in public as we draw near to the Christmas season.
The sad case of Mr. Waugh is summed up in his own words. "For my own part, I have never been able to join in any communal activity without violent feelings of repugnance and nausea." I hope those gathered round Mr. Waugh's table at Christmas will not find his repugnance and nausea too obvious.
I conclude with the comment of my 90-year-old Catholic mother on the article: "I think it is absolutely disgraceful for a Catholic to write like that." (Fr.) Geoffrey Pye Priest's House, Billericay, Essex.
