The Christmas Revolution- A New York Times Article and Response

Fr. Tom Coughlin


You should click on this and read it first. It is a NY times article that was printed recently.  Below is a response to Peter Wehner's excellent article titled "The Christmas Revolution."


Excellent homily! This is exactly what we need to hear on Christmas morning in our sorely besieged society that is constantly bombarded with pessimism and hopelessness. Peter Wehner definitely should be awarded the top prize in the Preaching of the Stars contest, if any and, moreover, his sermonizing skills equal 10 top-homilists and a prestigious position at St. Patrick's Cathedral or St. John the Divine Church. There is no need for him to go to School of Theology to complete a grueling 4 year of stale theology lectures in order to deliver a message of refreshing hope in our society that is devaluing practically everything. Peter has successfully delivered this important message both to believer and non-believer that God does value everything in our lives which is the core message of Incarnation. Without Incarnation, nothing else makes sense. God did become a man and dwelt among us. We have seen Him. We have heard Him. We have touched Him. We have killed Him and yet He did not go away, always coming back to us with forgiveness and reconciliation. Such is a magnificent Christmas message today. I look forward to his Easter message this coming March.
