Terry Mattingly, a religion expert who writes a weekly column for Scripps Howard News Service and is also a major contributor to the Get Religion blog (which is must-reading for anyone concerned about the coverage of religion in the mainstream media), gave a nice little plug in a couple places last week to the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ special Advent and Christmas section on the conference’s Web site. Mattingly pointed out (and we probably all need reminders) that the Christmas season doesn’t end when the carols stop on the radio and people throw their trees to the curb. (I saw two discarded trees just this morning on my drive to work.)
Since today is only the fifth day of Christmas, and since the USCCB points out that the Christmas season doesn’t really end until the feast of the Baptism of the Lord, the site is probably worth a visit each day from now until Jan. 11.
