Merry Little Christmas

Epiphany Season!

January 6th begins Epiphany and we are now into the first ordinal (counting) season of the liturgical year. I like to point out this time is NOT "ordinary" - it is "ordinal." Regardless of the missalette calling it "ordinary" the connotation is nothing special, when it is still a special season!
Epiphany is also known as "Little Christmas." So, have yourself a merry Little Christmas now! (sorry, couldn't resist!)

It Is Still Christmastide!

Even though we are into Epiphany, there is an overlap here! Christmastide lasts all the way to Candlemas, which is February 2nd - so Merry Christmas!

3) The "Spam Filter" is on - and randomly messages get caught in that filter. I have no control over which messages get caught in the spam filter and those that do must wait for me to mark them as "not spam." A message caught by the spam filter may show up for a moment, making you think it posted, and then disappear. Do not assume I have deleted your comment, it's probably just the spam filter and it will show up.
