' ' 7 THE ECHO Merry Christmas! In spite of the widespread eyforts being made to de-Christianize Christmas by vainly pretending to trace its origin to pagan times and customs, by flooding the world with picture cards devoid of all religious sentiment and featuring glowing yule-logs, snow-covered hills and dales and sparkling holly sprigs, and by giving over the day and the season entirely to social amusements and unsocial carousals, it must and will rank first, last and always as as Christian feast to the core. Is it not, indeed, the birthday of the Christ, aye, even the feast of Christ's Mass? The very name stamps its unmistakably Christian character. I ' Merry Christmas! The joy which the greeting bespeaks should have source in the soul. The good tidings tell us that "this day is born to us a Saviour." So our joy is that of the inner man, but not that only. Out of its very fullness it bubbles over to the outer, physical man, and thereby the whole man is made happy. That is why innocent fun and feasting and even fireworks are strictly in order at the Christmas season. Everybody is privileged to be a child about the crib of Bethlehem. Merry Christmas! We have heard it said, and with truth, that there is no happiness like that which comes from making others happy. Let us, then, make our Infant Lord happy by devoutly hearing Mass-even more than once--on Christ's Mass Day, and loyally receiving into our hearts Him for whom there was no room in the inn, and keeping Him ever enshrined therein by shunning sin and doing good works. Let us also make Him happy in His other Self, the poor, by succoring them in their needs for the sake of the poor "Infant wrapped in swaddling clothes and laid in a man- ger." A Christmas barren of deeds of charity is unworthy of a follower of that same Infant who later in His life spoke the words, "As long as you did it to one of these my least brethren, you did it to me." Help His least brethren and make Him your bounden debtor. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! This is The Echo's sincere wish to all its contributors, subscribers, advertisers, friends and readers. On this blessedl Christmas morn, When our Saviour meek was born, May He From His loving Heart Choicest gifts to you imparty And throughout the bright New Year Grant you boundless grace and cheer!
