The 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 OB 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!” At this new beginning of the Liturgical Year, we gather among our family of believers and celebrate this wondrous newborn. Let the feasts and solemnities begin! In anticipation of the holy days of 2011, 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 RCIA and Confirmation groups.
