It's Party Time
Yesterday I was told that the sign language movement for Hallelujah involves swirling your hands while raising them up above your head.
And, that when you watch a Mass for the deaf, when the attendees "sing" Hallelujah before they hear the Gospel reading, it looks like one big festive party.
Which got me thinking: That's what it should be like for everyone. We should all get as excited to hear the Word of God as we do to go to a big party. (written as I look in mirror)
Which got me thinking more: With Christmas coming up in less than a week, most people are getting ready for a big party.
The question is: Is it a present-exchanging, eat-lots-of-food, drink-lots-of-wine, party...
... or a birthday party?
