Why is it that some holidays seem to be more popular than others? Some are talked about for months or weeks before actually arriving and others are not talked about as much until the actual day arrives. It seems strange to me that holidays such as Halloween and Valentine’s Day make headlines in the news and others such as Easter and Good Friday are kept secret.
That is why I feel so blessed to have been brought up in a Catholic Church. Where all of the Christian holidays were celebrated and made into a big deal. As I was sitting in church listening to the sermon I realized how lucky I was to be brought up with the parents I had and the religious upbringing that has been part of my life ever since. My family had planted the seed and my faith and devotion has grown ever since. What a blessing it is to be part of a Christian community.
