Lovely piece on the actual point of Christmas

at, of all places, HuffPo.  I didn’t know HuffPo allowed that kind of thing.  Nice to see!

Me: I think the main trick to keeping Christ in Christmas is keeping Mass in Christmas.

    That is a great piece. He really puts his finger right on it.

    Thanks for pointing this out. It is always good to see the Truth when it pops up in unexpected (by me anyway) places. It’s a reminder of the omnipresence of the Truth as well as the need for humilty in that those I disagree with on many temporal things are right on some more fundamental and important things. Agree with your point on Mass. Some time back I took someone’s advice and started trying to treat Advent a little morelike Lent; it really brought out a lot more of the joy and happiness that is in the Season waiting for us if we are open to it.
