I wanted a different way to wish all of you a Merry Christmas this year.
It seems in years past, I post a picture of our Christmas tree
with a wish to you for a Merry Christmas.
This year, I'm getting a little more personal.
Every Christmas Eve,
before the big Italian feast,
and before the chaos of unwrapping gifts,
we go to Christmas Eve Mass.
This Mass is my most favorite of any throughout the year
for reasons I don't think I can put into words.
I'm not one to preach here on the old blog,
but this Mass is like having
the joy, the magic & the spirit of Christmas
all combine together for the
true meaning of the season.
Our church, when all is dark & only the Christmas lights are lit,
is a breathtaking sight.
I wish I had a nighttime picture to share with you,
but I hope this one will suffice.
(Imagine the large, 100-year old church being completely dark
with only this altar display lit.)
Wishing you the joy,
& the spirit of Christmas
now & always.
Love to you all,
