There have been posters and billboards all over town asking people to keep the Christ in Christmas. But, unlike the beauty challenge, I have this one for you. I challenge YOU. Each and every single one of you to try to put the Christ back in Christmas.
There are so many ways that we can do this: Visiting old folks homes ( Next wendsday, C.C. people and other S+L people have been invited to go caroling at St Josephs Hospital. Doesn't matter if you can sing or not, come and spread the joy ), Raising money for Charaties and so forth.
Yet there is a main thing that you can all do in this Christmas season, and I expect you all to do it. ATTEND MASS. It is one of the most rewarding parts of Christmas. To be surrounded by the ones you love worshiping the God that you know came in this world for each and every single one of us.
So when you have the choice, to stay home and open presents, or to attend Mass, I urge you to attend the mass. If you have the choice to go out with buddies and get drunk at a christmas party, or go and spread joy to those who don't, spread the Joy.
Spread the message.
Without Christ, there would be no CHRISTmas.
Love you all
