In a humorous and clearly informative presentation, Reverend Michael Schmitz, priest at the University of Minnesota, Newman Center, delivers the most convincing and logical case for the existence of God that you may have ever heard. He follows this explanation by further validating that Jesus was more than a holy man. He was God.

...
If all that exists is simply matter - all made of atoms - than there is no difference between humans and just plain stuff, says Fr. Schmitz.

While all of these crafts and activities can help one better celebrate Christmas, it's important not to let them distract from the true purpose of the season: preparation for the Incarnation, said Fr. Mike Schmitz, chaplain for the Newman Center at the University of Minnesota Duluth. Fr. Schmitz told CNA that one of the things that gets easily overlooked about Advent is "that it's actually a season of penance" and as such, the Church asks us to practice prayer, fasting, and almsgiving. "That's kind of like the buzzkill of Advent because it's like, 'OK, don't have too much fun because, remember, this is a penitential season'," he said. However, just because it's a season of penance doesn't mean we need to be somber. "I think there's some great ways that a person or a family can make that - prayer, fasting, and almsgiving - a part of the celebration of preparation for Christmas. It doesn't have to be a dour kind of experience," he said. The simplest way Catholics can prepare for Christmas, Fr. Schmitz suggested, is by going to confession during Advent. "During Advent the faithful are asked not only to prepare themselves to celebrate Christmas, but we're called to prepare ourselves to meet Jesus at the end of time," he said. "There's a lot of good ways to do that, but I think one of the best ways a person could possibly do that is to go to confession. For Kathryn Whitaker of the blog, "Team Whitaker," observing Advent is all about knowing what works best for your family. "There are lots and lots of beautiful ideas on Pinterest and other places, but I think you have to find what suits your family and then not apologize or feel badly because someone else is doing it differently," she said. In an attempt to dial back the frenzy of Christmas morning, she said her family began look for ways to serve others and be grateful for what they already have in the weeks leading up to it.
