I would like to wish all of you a happy and blessed Christmas. I have to be honest: I am sometimes overwhelmed by the hustle and bustle of December. There are so many parties and presents that need to be bought... it seems there is never enought time in the day.
When Christmas is over, I take a deep breath and prepare to hunker down for the rest of the winter. With all that being said, there are several things I enjoy. I get to see my family more often. People seem to be in a better mood. Finally, it is a time when more people focus in on Jesus and what He has meant to their lives. There is one other "occasion" during the Christmas season that most of you may not be familiar with - it is the time of year when CatholiCTV gets the most donations.
I am asking you to consider a gift to CatholicTV this Christmas. I have set a personal goal of 4,000 donations for the month. Most of the people at CatholicTV think that this will be a difficult goal to achieve, but I trust in you! For years, you have supported the station and allowed us to bring Masses, The Rosary, and all our fine programs into the homes of so many people.
By donating online, you will help CatholicTV continue to change lives. What a gift you would be giving to those who need to hear the loving message of Jesus and know that they are not alone in this difficult world. I know 4,000 in a large number, but it all starts with one - and that could be you. Thank you for anything you can do, and know you are in my thoughts and prayers.
