172- Bonding with Christmas

It’s post Thanksgiving and we all can extend the Christmas season by starting right now. Shake off the doubting world and self-imposed shopping pressure. This is the time of the Advent season and Nativity Fast.  

As preparations for their trek to Bethlehem began for the Virgin Mary and Joseph, we too have the opportunity to celebrate life by preparing for the joy Christmas brings to our world.

Photo with text that reads as follows;Let us journey towards the Feast of the Nativity with joyous hearts! Fast no only from food, but also from hatred and fear. Bring forth goodness and kindness to all. Forgive, Be generous, In all thints, give glory to God.

If the Christmas Spirit was lacking in last year’s holiday season, why not try something different? Why not go beyond “Santa’s Big Day?” Why not start the season earlier (like today) and end the Christmas season later? (12 days of Xmas ends January 6)

Take a moment and consider partaking in the pre-Christmas activities during  Advent or the Nativity Fast… You’ll be glad you did.

Constant Procession tells of key apparitions of the Virgin Mary since she passed on from the world and how she serves humanity through Christianity.

The origin of these podcasts began with my book Constant Procession.

(An e-book copy of the book can be found here on the website.)

Constant Procession; the podcast; is published here every Tuesday morning.

I’ve read the entire book from cover to cover (Installments 93-110)
