“We are to regard existence as a raid or great adventure; it is to be judged, therefore, not by what calamities it encounters, but by what flag it follows and what high town it assaults. The most dangerous thing in the world is to be alive; one is always in danger of one’s life. But anyone who shrinks from that is a traitor to the great scheme and experiment of being.” ~G.K. Chesterton
It is December the 9th, and Advent continues its onward advance under the flag of Christendom with its associated customs and activities. The Marian Room contributors have been busy with family and friends; yes, Catholic culture is alive and well. Today, I am posting a slew of pictures of Catholic happenings which occurred over the weekend. I hope you had a lovely feast of the Immaculate Conception, and stand in the remains of its glow for some time. I think you will. But, without further ado, Catholic culture in Advent:
Yes, Catholic culture is alive today.
May you have a good day.
