Quote: The Year and Our Children

Mary Reed Newland in The Year & Our Children: Catholic Family Celebrations for Every Season:
Such a strange custom, celebrating Christmas and not knowing why. Much of the world does not know why--and that is very sad. There is only one reason in all the world to feast and be merry at Christmas: because we are redeemed, and Christmas is the feast of the beginning of our Redemption. In this bewilderingly beautiful season, in a most mysterious and beautiful way, God became a Baby.
