Another Good Reason to Become Catholic! Christmas Cards
I admit, this is perhaps not the best reason to convert, but since I have been Catholic, the array of Christmas cards to choose for friends and family has just expanded exponentially!
From the whimsical to the wonderfully illuminated images of the Holy Family from all those great pre-reformation artists. The sky is the limit and I no longer have to limit my selection to the Thomas Kincade collection at our local bible bookstore.
I don't have to avoid the beautiful sacred images of ancient times that told the glorious story of His birth. I remember before I Crossed the Tiber how I would avoid like the plague any image that depicted the Holy Family with halos around their heads.
After all, a halo around Mary's head could get you thinking that... hmmm.... maybe she was like a little more special to God than a random Jewish virgin.
Merry Christmas !
Christmas?...where'd they get that word from?
