The Church makes sure there's season for everything
In this Ascension Press video, Fr. Mike Schmitz reminds us that the liturgical days and seasons of the Church help us to live the full human experience. Too often, we get too busy to bother with the ebbs and flows of the Church’s calendar, or perhaps we just pay it lip service or go through the motions. When we do that, we hold ourselves back from real joy, as well as real sorrow. But there are times of the year when the Church says it’s time to enter into a greater depth of experience. And this is one of those seasons. It’s still Christmas — keep celebrating!
