Of Christmas Ghosts

The sweetness and power of Dickens’ Christmas Ghosts is discovered in their purpose: they visit Old Scratch in hopes of doing him good. This holy intent rings true as a church bell to the real world around us – for whether we wish to acknowledge it or resist it to the end, the reality of this life is that Good is not haunted by Evil–

Evil is ever haunted by Good.
