A Little Krustmas Eve Meditation

Has it really been two years since the Bar Jester said, Forget about Christ; put the mass back in Christmas? Time flies when you’re making fun.

Now you can get a magnetic bumper sticker that says as much.

Fr. Mark Sietsema has brought a little more sincerity, charity, and clarity to the matter.

Among the points he makes: exactly which Christ is it that you want put back in Christmas? Surely not the one who says, “Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man’s life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth.”

But it’s Christmas Eve, and I wouldn’t be thought a three-decker sauerkraut and toadstool sandwich with arsenic sauce.

Besides, the cattle are lowing. Merry Christmas, everyone.

    Don’t *keep* Christ in Christmas. Let Him out for the rest of the year!

    Merry Christmas to you and yours.
    With some theological adjustment–of which I know you disapprove, but hang with me for a moment–I found your friend’s piece most refreshing and needed.
    Thanks, and again Merry Christmas.
