Keep Christ in Christmas

To the Editor:

We would like to bring to the attention of your Garden City News readers that in today’s issue we have placed a beautiful, double-page, centerfold “Keep Christ in Christmas” message. This is the fourth year that we have placed this message, and we trust it will become a tradition in Garden City to bring attention to the true meaning of Christmas.

We recognize that the true meaning of Christmas is mostly ignored in society. We see endless news stories about “Black Friday” sales, “Christmas-themed” movies that rarely display a nativity scene, and appalling legal challenges to Nativity displays by anti-Christian groups.

The words, “Merry Christmas”, have been banned at schools, colleges, businesses, department stores, etc. Instead, we repeatedly hear, “Happy Holidays”, intended to encompass all the politically-correct bromides of the season. It seems that we do not want to offend any one’s feelings, with the exception, of course, of those of Jesus Christ and His Blessed Mother.

In response to the secularization of Christmas, we Knights have pledged to proclaim publicly and joyfully our belief in the true meaning of Christmas – the celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ, Our Lord and Savior, the Light of the World.  

This special Christmas message was made possible by the generous support of the members of the Knights of Columbus St. Joseph-Bishop Baldwin Council #15809, and parishioners and friends of the Church of St. Joseph who wish to remember in this beautiful season of gift-giving, that the greatest gift of all is God’s gift of His Son to the world!

We wish all a very Happy and Holy Christmas as we always remember to Keep Christ in Christmas.

Joe Levano,
Deputy Grand Knight,
The Knights of Columbus
St. Joseph-Bishop Baldwin Council No.15809
