Embracing Christmas.

An article, with quotes from Pope Benedict XVI ( then Cardinal Ratzinger).

Christmas, Sacred and Secular

“The hectic commercialism is repugnant to us,” wrote Cardinal Ratzinger, “…. And yet, underneath it all, does it not originate in the notion of giving and thus the inner urgency of love, with its compulsion to share, to give of oneself to the other? And does not the notion of giving transport us directly into the core of the mystery that is Christmas?”
