Holidays #13 Unto Us A Child is Born
Prince of Peace
As a Catholic, I celebrate this joyous day. Christmas is the season during which Christians everywhere give thanks to God the Father for the birth of His Son, Jesus Christ. This joyous cycle begins today, December 25.
Christmas is not a celebration that lasts a single day. Christmas is a twelve-day season that begins on December 25 and ends on January 5, the eve of the Epiphany. These “Twelve Days of Christmas” are in turn part of a longer liturgical cycle that begins with Advent, continues after Christmas with Epiphany and the Sundays that follow, and ends with Ash Wednesday the first day of Lent. I share this beautiful rendition of Unto Us a Child is Born from the London Symphony Orchestra with you today. Every time I hear this, I get chills in my body. Love the message and what it means to the world.

Lastly, I was given a gift a few years back to attend a David Foster concert and enjoy Andrea Bocelli- one of the worlds greatest musical treasures. Angels We Have Heard on High.
