'Tis the Season... To Attack the Church

The atheists are at it again and the levels of illogic in this scheme are astounding... and yet so many people believe this group is on to something. Click here to see a news report on their most recent ad campaign

The real problem is not the atheists, but Catholics and other Christians who are not willing to defend Our Lord and the Church from such attacks by reforming their own lives. The solution to this problem is NOT saying "Merry Christmas" as often as possible during the Advent Season (and then to stop saying it during the Christmas Season). Rather, we need to become ardent believers in the Incarnation, which will mean a radical change in how we live our lives every day of the year. Every churchgoing Catholic needs to rediscover the beautiful Season of Advent, which does have penitential overtones in its Joyful Expectation.


This coming Sunday, St. John the Baptist will call us into the desert to repent and reform our lives, not to cram into malls and spend large amounts of money. St. John wants us to prepare for His Coming, not for a party and exchange of expensive gifts. If you truly believe that Jesus is the Reason for the Season, then repent now and reform your life. Anything less feeds the atheists' illogic, and puts a big smile on Satan's face.

The sad reality is that most so-called believers also think Christmas is about the jolly fat guy in a red suit and lavish gift giving. If you truly believe that Jesus Christ came in the Flesh 2000 years ago, that He died for our sins and rose from the Dead to open the gates of Heaven for those who believe, and that He will come again to judge the living and the dead, then give up living the lie that has become "the season" and embrace the Truth. "Prepare the way of the Lord. Make straight HIS paths."

It is time for every Christian to fall on his or her knees and adore our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ!
