Merry Christmas!

As we celebrate Christmas in our house and parish, our prayers go out to our fellow Catholics on the other side of the world. Click here for some Christmas Day reading on evolving Chinese practices when it comes to celebrating Christmas. And, from the archives, read the last paragraph of this for our first-hand encounter with incomprehensible mish-mash that is Christmas in a predominantly non-Christian country.

This is from the Pope's Christmas message..."May the birth of the savior strengthen the spirit of faith, patience and courage of the faithful of the church in mainland China, that they may not lose heart through the limitations imposed on their freedom of religion and conscience but, persevering in fidelity to Christ and his church, may keep alive the flame of hope."
