By Fran Salone-Pelletier, Religion Columnist

We’re nearly there. There’s a full-court press in the media urging folks to take advantage of deals and sales. It is an explicit and implicit statement that presents will somehow indicate presence. Gifts will be the overt expression of love. And, there is truth in it all...but not complete truth, not the fullness of reality.
