Does ANYONE Know What Christmas Is About?

Linus does:

He gets the translation wrong about "Goodwill" - for it is not "Peace, goodwill toward men" but "Peace to men of good will."  Other than that - it's nice to see this message on secular TV at least once a year...

We could take it a bit further - saying, "Christmas is really about the Christ Mass - which the Catholic Church selected December 25th as the day to celebrate the Feast of Christ's Birth - thus the Mass of that day is the Christ Mass - and while we're celebrating His birth, we're also remembering WHY He was born into this world.... to suffer and die for our sins because He loves us.



  1. That's really nice Scott,

    Nice to see you being slavish to the Douay-Rheims.
    But you didn't even get the DRA right.
    There is a space between "good" and "will" in the DRA. Just as there is in the Vulgate.

    If you're gonna be a slave... be a good one, huh?

  2. LOL Ron! I fixed it. Thanks! Trying to be a goodone. ;-)

    In JMJ,


Keep in mind while posting:
1) Please respond ON TOPIC to the article at hand.
2) Posts more than 4 weeks old are set to automatically save new comments for moderation - so your comment may not show up immediately if you're responding to an older post.
3) The "Spam Filter" is on - and randomly messages get caught in that filter. I have no control over which messages get caught in the spam filter and those that do must wait for me to mark them as "not spam." A message caught by the spam filter may show up for a moment, making you think it posted, and then disappear. Do not assume I have deleted your comment, it's probably just the spam filter and it will show up.
