Four Christmas articles are loaded into the Archived Articles section of the blog. This section of the blog is reserved to Donor Subscribers. Every week I upload three or four articles that I have written for other outlets over the years. If you would like to learn more about being a Donor Subscriber go here.

This week’s articles:

Christmas, Pagan Romans and Frodo Baggins – What is the true date for the birth of Jesus and what does it have to do with Frodo?

What’s Wrong With Santa – Yes, we know that “Santa” is an anagram of “Satan” but is he really that bad?

Have Yourself a Very English Christmas – a lighthearted piece about how England is celebrated in the damp lands

The Living Word  – From the liturgy section, a piece from Catholic Digest on how to best appreciate the Ministry of the Word at Mass.

Remember there are now two levels of Donor Subscriptions. If you would like to support the blog, but can’t budget $8.95 a month you can join as a Podcast Donor Subscriber for $4.95 a month and gain extra benefits and help support the hosting, design, maintenance and promotion of the blog.

Special thanks to all who have supported the work so far!
