Christmas, what's Christmas says Catholic Parishes?

“To the angel of the church in Laodicea, write this: ” ‘The Amen, the faith­ful and true wit­ness, the source of God’s cre­ation, says this: “I know your works; I know that you are nei­ther cold nor hot. I wish you were either cold or hot. So, because you are luke­warm, nei­ther hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth. For you say, ‘I am rich and afflu­ent and have no need of any­thing,’ and yet do not real­ize that you are wretched, pitiable, poor, blind, and naked. I advise you to buy from me gold refined by fire so that you may be rich, and white gar­ments to put on so that your shame­ful naked­ness may not be exposed, and buy oint­ment to smear on your eyes so that you may see. Those whom I love, I reprove and chas­tise. Be earnest, there­fore, and repent.

Rev­e­la­tion 3:14 – 19

Today I went to the 8 a.m. Mass so I could watch the Sun­day shows, it was a pretty good ser­mon on Love of God and Neigh­bor but when I was leav­ing church and saw the Church Bul­letin I found myself upset at the sec­ond page

You’ll note that the Boxed event at my parish St. Anthony di Padua is our Coun­try Christ­mas Fair on Novem­ber 17th, but we also have announce­ments from three other Catholic Parishes.

St. Cecilia is hav­ing a “Hol­i­day” fair

Immac­u­late Heart of Mary is their “Annual fall festival”

St. Joseph is hav­ing their “Hol­i­day Fes­ti­val & Craft fair”

Hol­i­day? What hol­i­day? Flag Day? Chi­nese New Year? Yom Kippur?

I’m very proud that my parish did not join in this nonsense.

These are Catholic Churches for God’s sake, this is the same thing that drove me nuts about Anna Maria Col­lege and their “Hol­i­day” con­cert. Either we are Catholic or we are not. If our own Catholics are not will­ing to say the word “Christ­mas” dur­ing their own events. If we are not respect­ing Christ­mas then why should we expect any­one else to?

Either your faith means some­thing or it does not.

“To the angel of the church in Laodicea, write this: ” ‘The Amen, the faithful and true witness, the source of God’s creation, says this: “I know your works; I know that you are neither cold nor hot.  I wish you were either cold or hot. So, because you are lukewarm, neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth. For you say, ‘I am rich and affluent and have no need of anything,’ and yet do not realize that you are wretched, pitiable, poor, blind, and naked. I advise you to buy from me gold refined by fire so that you may be rich, and white garments to put on so that your shameful nakedness may not be exposed, and buy ointment to smear on your eyes so that you may see. Those whom I love, I reprove and chastise. Be earnest, therefore, and repent.

Revelation 3:14-19

Today I went to the 8 a.m. Mass so I could watch the Sunday shows, it was a pretty good sermon on Love of God and Neighbor but when I was leaving church and saw the Church Bulletin I found myself upset at the second page

You’ll note that the Boxed event at my parish St. Anthony di Padua is our Country Christmas Fair on November 17th, but we also have announcements from three other Catholic Parishes.

St. Cecilia is having a “Holiday” fair

Immaculate Heart of Mary is their “Annual fall festival”

St. Joseph is having their “Holiday Festival & Craft fair”

Holiday? What holiday? Flag Day? Chinese New Year? Yom Kippur?

I’m very proud that my parish did not join in this nonsense.

These are Catholic Churches for God’s sake, this is the same thing that drove me nuts about Anna Maria College and their “Holiday” concert. Either we are Catholic or we are not. If our own Catholics are not willing to say the word “Christmas” during their own events. If we are not respecting Christmas then why should we expect anyone else to?

Either your faith means something or it does not.
