During this most holy and special time of year it is easy to lose focus on what is most important. When it is all said and done, Will it really matter if you got everything on your list? Bought everything you wanted? Cooked and baked all your specialties?

Sometimes we miss the most important things. The challenges that enrich our lives, improve our spirituality and bring us closer to God. Will our Lord see us at mass Christmas or are we too busy?

Perhaps, a seat in a church on the 25th (or 24th ) is the springboard we need to get our life back on track in the matter of Jesus. We can sing all the carols we like, drink all the eggnog and relish in our new gifts, but perhaps we should offer up a gift to God and to keep on giving henceforth (and not the jelly of the month club).

So, I offer these two distinct and inspirational posts from Bishop Barron to help us on this new journey we should embark on.

God bless each of us!
