    A superb explanation of what we are to God, and How we matter, even in our sinful degraded situation. Who could invent a God like ours ? Who in their wildest imagining could know that love could be so intense as this. The gift we have never earned, the gift that gives for all eternity. As the father said, "Let Every Head Bow at the name, JESUS!" Thank You for the reminder of why I am a Catholic, and love being Catholic more with every passing day.

    I Just wanted to say thank you for this wonderful article on the REAL meaning of this season. Also, to compliment this article, one may want to hear the song 'How Many Kings' by Down Here.

    Thank you, I needed this article. I realized this week I was slipping into a very "UN-joyful" attitude, letting the world invade my Joy. Your article was an answer to my prayer. Now I will strive to have a joyful Advent and a Merry Christmas.
