Hey! It's Still Christmas!
Some of our Eskimo brothers and sisters have an appropriate greeting!
It’s really quite wonderful that something which started on the other side of the planet with a couple of refugee parents and no earthly prospect of success should now be celebrated in remote villages in the Arctic Circle (as well as in China, Timbuktoo, obscure Andean villages, and over 2.2 billion other spots on the globe. God loves defying the odds.
On the other hand, 2.2 billion is still only 2/7ths of the world’s population, which means we still have a lot of work to do and shouldn’t be counting overmuch on a premature Second Coming to get us off the hook from the job of pressing forward with the New Evangelization. Once the holidays are over, it’s back to work, Church!
Merry Christmas and Happy Feast of Holy Innocents!
