Lex Cordis Caritas - The law of the heart is Love

by Bishop Thomas John Paprocki
The spirit of joy emanates from the Nativity of our Savior Jesus Christ, whose birth we continue to celebrate during this Christmas season. Although the commercial world of retail sales has put away its Christmas promotions until next fall, we in the church are actually now in the midst of our Christmas celebrations. While the secular world was giving us holiday music and seasonal hype to promote shopping, we were preparing our hearts for the birth of Jesus during the liturgical season of Advent.
