Catholic Focus: What Is Christmas?

December 23, 2008
A popular song describes Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year -- well if it's so wonderful, why are we so quick to rush through Christmas and move onto the next celebration? And what is this basis of this wonder?
In this year's Catholic Focus Christmas episode we explore what Christmas is -- what it means to us, or perhaps what it should mean to us. We also explore how we can better embrace this spirit of Christmas, this Christmas wonder!
To discuss this, I'm joined in studio by Salt + Light producers Pedro Guevara Mann and Mary Rose Bacani, as well as our CEO Fr. Thomas Rosica. We also hear from some Catholic Chaplains based out of York region in Ontario, and enjoy a performance of "Silent Night" by The Priests and members of St. Michael's Choir School.
Join us for Catholic Focus: What Is Christmas? Tuesday December 23rd, Thursday December 25th and Sunday December 28th at 7pm and 11pm ET.
