Therefore every scribe who has been trained for the kingdom of heaven is like a householder who brings out of his treasure what is new and what is old.
love the classic end zone show boating over the tackled santa.
Perhaps we should put the Mass back into Christ-mass as well?
Does he tackle for "Happy Holiday" as well? I hope so.BMP
Personally I think Xmas has been ruined by boneheaded people who don't know the difference between an ex and a chi (and chi stands for Christ in Greek, boys and girls) and by bah-humbugging old Scrooges who would rather stand on the sidelines comdemning "materialism" than join the rest of the world in celebrating Our Holy Mother's second most important feast.
I would largely agree with you. I don't go in for condemning the "commercialism" of Christmas in my sermons - in fact, I must remember to point out this year (as I usually do) that people have to make a living and that if they do so by selling Christmas presents, or Rosaries at Lourdes, that is better than a lot of things they could be making money at.Of course, you're right about the X in Xmas - but there is a lot of nonsense too - such as cards with snow scenes, victorian carriages or brussels sprouts.
Speaking of putting Christ back into Christmas, I found a great place to get religious Christmas cards. They capture the true meaning of Christmas with a Christmas message, a religious image, PLUS a family photo. you can order them here at www.truechristmascards.com and they ship within 3 days.
