    Thank you, Father. Wishing you a beautiful and very Merry Christmas.

  2. God richly bless you, Father, and may the miracle of the Virgin Birth be for you, and for us, an example and encouragement to become more fully who HE wants us to be in the coming year.

    Joyeaux Noel!

    Merry Christmas Father Z. Your blog has been enriching my faith since I heard you preach at Holy Innocents near the end of 2011 (I think). I can’t thank you enough. I have learned so much from you. May G-d bless you abundantly.

    Thank you Father Z, for giving yourself to the priesthood and for this great blog that teaches me so much and has introduced me to Mystic Monk Coffee and dialogue of the multus of orthodox Catholics who still love the Latin Mass. Merry Christmas.

    Merry Christmas, Father! Many thanks for the always interesting blog-posts and views of this wonderful adventure of Faith we are on. Prayers for you and all your readers! May Our Lady protect beneath her mantle all souls, especially those lonely and poor and suffering who do not see the miracle of the manger with the eyes of Faith.

  31. pannw says:

    Merry Christmas, Father and all Father Z’s readers. The number of times I’ve been on the verge of despairing that the entire world was upside down, only to come here and see that at least a few sane people still live…thank you all, especially Father Z. for being such a wonderful and informative host. God bless us, everyone!

  32. Palladio says:

    Jolly Christmas, Father Z.
    BIG QUESTION for you and for anybody in a position to answer: by the grace of God, a priest friend wishes to learn the EF! He lives about 20 miles from Philadelphia: could I have suggestions as to where he might learn to celebrate the Mass of the Saints?

  33. Liz says:

    Merry Christmas, Fr. Z. Thanks for all that you do for us!

  34. The Masked Chicken says:

    Often, when I say, “I wish you a Merry Christmas,” I am tempted to say, “I wish you Mary’s Christmas,” – Christ was conceived in Mary’s heart long before He was ever conceived in her womb. May Christ be born in your heart this day that you may bear Him into the world on all other days.

    There is a lovely Christmas poem by Madeline L’engle:

    Now is the irrational season.
    When love blooms bright and wild.
    If Mary had been full of reason.
    There’d have been no room for the Child.
