Christmas (Catholic Style)
"The great majority of people will go on observing forms that cannot be explained; they will keep Christmas Day with Christmas gifts and Christmas benedictions; they will continue to do it; and some day suddenly wake up and discover why." - GK Chesterton
"Thank Heaven the holidays are over!" Not so fast! We may be done with "holiday," but Christmas is still very much with us, and shall be for some weeks. Come to Theology on Tap - Pasadena and find out from Charles A. Coulombe about the REAL Christmas - accept no substitutes!
While the world is busy selling things to shoppers throughout November and December, the Church offers us joyful prayer and penance in order to prepare for the arrival of the newborn King. The real business of celebrating in Catholic style does not begin until Christmas Eve - and then goes on intensely until the Epiphany, and gradually tapering off until Candlemas on February 2.
Learn concrete tips on how you can get the most out of it with Catholic customs and worship. You owe it to yourself to really enjoy Christmas as it was meant to be enjoyed!
January 8, 8PM, at Griffins of Kinsale.
"Wherever the Catholic sun doth shine,
There’s always laughter and good red wine.
At least I’ve always found it so.
