A holy Christmas?

advent-wreath-wk2

“It might be easy to run away to a monastery, away from the commercialisation, the hectic hustle, the demanding family responsibilities of Christmas time.  Then we would have a holy Christmas.  But we would forget the lesson of the Incarnation, of the enfleshing of God – the lesson that we who are followers of Jesus do not run from the secular; rather we try to transform it.  It is our mission to make holy the secular aspects of Christmas just as the early Christians baptised the Christmas tree.  And we do this by being holy people – kind, patient, generous, loving, laughing people – no matter how maddening is the Christmas rush…”

(Fr Andrew Greeley, 22 December 1981).
