Jesus Is The Reason For Every Season

A statue of JesusAround Christmas time, in the United States, we see buttons and bumper stickers with “Jesus is the reason for the season” printed on them. It is admirable that people want to remember that Christmas is ultimately about Jesus, although I admit I am not a huge fan of showy Christian items that seem more motivated by “making a point” than actual evangelization.

Nonetheless, I think Christmas is an example of the deep longing people have to celebrate and commemorate meaningful things.

Catholics and other liturgical Christians (such as Anglicans, Orthodox, Lutherans, etc) know that the entire year – every single day – is a part of sacred time. In other words, what many people get from Christmas is available all year long, if they would just open themselves to the liturgical year.

So, Jesus is the reason for every season…and there is a season or daily celebration all year.
