Father Cornelius Holly, a Holy Ghost Father, was our first chaplain at our old Motherhouse. He hated that song. I hesitate to use the word “hate” as it is really strong, I also hesitate to write about a negative thought at Christmas, but in the end I think it will redeem itself.
Let me just say, Father Holly believed in God, the real Omnipotent, Omniscient, (that’s ALL powerful, ALL knowing) ALL Loving God. It rather made his skin crawl to refer to “a Merry LITTLE Christmas”. There isn’t much small about Christmas. God stepping into time with the gift of divinity becoming man…it is a BIG DEAL. About the only thing small about Christmas, is the baby Jesus, and that is HUGE.
Come celebrate with us on Monday the 16th at 1:30 or Tuesday the 17th at 7:00 PM. The program in the gym looks to be beautiful. Today one of the teachers said, “I was watching practice and I had to leave before I cried.” That’s a good program! Hope to see you there. …and Have Yourself a Merry, Monumental, Life-Changing Christmas! I hope to do the same.
