Lights

It's that time of year where we see many decorations proclaiming a new season. Many decorate the outside of their homes heralding the festivities of the month. It's delightful at this time of year to see tastefully decorated homes sporting a Nativity scene to show the true meaning behind the reason for decorating in the first place.

That brings me to another focus on lights. One that would delight the heart of the young and old. The lights that Shrines like La Salette offer at this time of year free of charge. It doesn't cost a thing to go and would benefit the soul as well. The only cost would be a donation to help defray the bill for the use of the electricity. The gift shop has delightful gifts for those looking for something unique.

This is the time of year I love to pay a visit to the one in Attleboro, Ma where I find hope during the Christmas season with the many that go and see the lights. But more would the hope be if many would take that extra step and visit our Lord in the Church. There is much to see and to hear as well, such as daily concerts by well known Father Pat and many others. It's guaranteed that listening will not be the only thing done at the concerts but active participation with singing along.

Anyway for many in different states I'm sure there must be a place of worship that offers delightful lights and music that help herald in the birth of our Savior. Take the time to visit and reconnect with God at these times. Instead of going shopping take a break and pay a visit, this is the real reason we are celebrating Christmas the birth of Jesus.
