Being-Catholic-SeasonsThe baby will be born soon! I remember each detail of my daughter’s arrival. My wife was past term and every few days we made a pilgrimage to the obstetrician’s office. With suitcase at the ready, we enjoyed a big breakfast before returning home. Except the day of Leslie’s birth! We anticipated breakfast so much that the doctor’s visit seemed beside the point. And the suitcase – well, who needs a suitcase for breakfast? We were stunned when the doctor ordered us directly to the hospital. After her birth, I soared from the delivery room to the nursery with my swaddled girl. I guess I had an out-of-body gaze because the pediatrician maternally cautioned: “Be careful now, that’s a precious bundle!” During these concluding days of Advent, we gather among our family of believers and await our wondrous newborn.  Let the feasts and solemnities begin! In anticipation of the holy days of 2013, we offer: “Being Catholic: Seasons and Feasts.” This 18 minute DVD is the third “Being Catholic” title in a series that includes “The Creed” and “Worship.” As a short primer in the sacramental flow of daily life, this DVD serves as an overview and discussion starter. Igniting the Catholic imagination, it’s a natural for Catechumenate and Confirmation groups. Order “Being Catholic: Seasons and Feasts” from the Media Resource Center @ or call Dan Hardester or Diane Gallagher @ 407-246-4895 (or 4897). (Dan Hardester serves as Secretary of the Evangelization Secretariat and Director of the Media Center.)
