I’m reblogging myself. Is that weird?
Anyway. . .
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!!!!!!!
Ok, its the New Church Year, as of Sunday, and that means its the start of Advent. To get everyone ready for the coming feast of Christmas, I’m linking to some earlier posts on this blog that might be of interest to you readers. All have a Christmas/Advent feel to them.
The first is my post on certain Christmas traditions, such as Yule Logs and Christmas trees. I learned a lot writing it, and I hope you learn a lot reading it!
The next is my post on the Dating of Christmas and Easter. There are a lot of confused thoughts about the dates for these important feasts in the Church, and rightly so, seeing as they are the two most important feasts on our calender. Perhaps this post might help in your devotion to the feasts.
Finally, there is my post on Mary and St. Joseph’s marriage. How can there be a valid marriage if they don’t consummate (since Mary and Joseph did not have sexual intercourse)? This post delves into that question.
Remember, if you have questions, send them this way!
And now for the reason why there’s a GIANT “Keep Christ in Christmas” picture at the top of this post. Its because I’m participating in the KEEP CHRIST IN CHRISTMAS Blog Link-Up 2013, sponsored by the Catholic Bloggers Network (SO COOL!).
Check all these cool blogs (links below) and maybe, just maybe, you’ll learn some fun Adventiness you never learned before. I just started reading them, and I’ve learned so much!
Veni, Veni, Emmanuel. . .
