From Fr. Dennis’ Desk

MERRY CHRISTMAS . . . PLEASE!!!

Ask most people, and they report that I have many pet peeves.  I admit it, I own them, some for a long time.  One of my biggest pet peeves is when Catholics “give in” to the culture and say “Happy Holidays.”  Those two words, innocent enough, threaten to take Christ out of Christmas.  We hear the words, and we get comfortable using them.  I receive many cards from Catholics with “Season’s Greetings” instead of Merry Christmas.  Please – Jesus is the reason for the season – use His Name, the most Holy Name of all.

Advent Peace,

Fr. Dennis J. Vincenzo
