“Our once great western Christian civilization is dying. If this matters to followers of Jesus Christ, then we must set aside our denominational differences and work together to strengthen the things that remain and reclaim what has been lost. Evangelicals and Catholics must stand together to re-establish that former Christian culture and moral consensus. We have the numbers and the organization but the question is this: Do we have the will to win this present spiritual battle for Jesus Christ against secularism? Will we prayerfully and cooperatively work toward a new Christian spiritual revival ― or will we choose to hunker down in our churches and denominationalisms and watch everything sink into the spiritual and moral abyss of a New Dark Age?” - Mark Davis Pickup

I love Christmas. I love Christmas for the lights and music and excited anticipation I see in my grandchildren -- but mostly because of the divine love given to us in the Incarnation and fills my heart. I can not fathom such love, all I can do is take in its warmth. God made man. God with us.

God has been with me even in my darkest moments of degenerative multiple sclerosis and cancer. A message too profound for words is there "Be not afraid, I AM with you."[1]

Yes, God is with us and calls you and me to Him, through the atoning sacrifice of His Son Jesus Christ at Calvary. If Christ had not stepped through time and into a cradle in Bethlehem, He could not have staggered under the weight of a cross to Calvary for our eternity.
