Crossing the Line on Christmas

Since this is my first Christmas as a baptized and confirmed Catholic, I thought it a great opportunity to use a column that falls on Christmas Eve to reflect on the holiday. Also because this is my first Catholic Christmas, I still understand the inclination to tune out proselytizers. In fact, I confess that certain “buzzwords” still make me flinch when stated too theatrically because they are so facile that they can sound insincere. “Salvay-shun!”
