Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
I was a child of the ‘80s. And like many of you, this time of year meant getting out the JCPenney Christmas catalog and circling items you wanted Santa Claus to bring. In 1985, it was for me, He-Man riding on a green tiger named Cringer. This was the first item on my Christmas wish list and I knew I had one month to be good if this wish was to be a reality.
We give gifts to each other this time of year to show our love for one another. This is why the three Wisemen travel for days to bring gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh to the infant Jesus.
Jesus told us, “Give and gifts will be given to you; a good measure, packed together, shaken down, and overflowing, will be poured into your lap.” (Lk. 6:38). Giving gifts this time of year reminds us that God has given us the greatest gift in His Son, Jesus.
Our Lord said, “Unless you become like a child, you cannot enter the kingdom of God” (Mt. 18:3). So, I am trying to be more like a child again but instead of browsing through the JCPenney Christmas Catalog, I have been going through the Autom church catalog and the School Specialty catalog and marking them up to put together a St. Peter Christmas wish list.
Here is our 2021 wish list: Parish
