“Celebrate” Quotes

Celebrate the feast of Christmas every day, even every moment in the interior temple of your spirit, remaining like a baby in the bosom of the heavenly Father, where you will be reborn each moment in the Divine Word, Jesus Christ. – St. Paul of the Cross (hat-tip Quote Catholic)


Even a custom like Christmas baking… has its roots in the Church’s Advent liturgy, which makes its own the glorious words of the Old Testament… ‘In that day, the mountains will drip with sweetness, and the rivers will flow with milk and honey.’ People of old found in such words the embodiment of their hopes for a world redeemed…

Perhaps the right way to celebrate Advent is to let the signs of God’s love that we receive in this period penetrate our soul, without resistance, without questions and quibbling. Warmed by these signs, we can then receive in full confidence the immeasurable kindness of this child. – Cardinal Ratziner, The Blessing of Christmas
