To Everyone Who Works During Christmas: A Tribute

It’s Christmas Eve. Today and tomorrow are busy days for pastors.

While many others get a break tonight and tomorrow, pastors like me are hard at work.

We’re preparing for Christmas Eve Candlelight services, Midnight Masses and Christmas Day celebrations.

While others wrap last-minute gifts, travel to grandma’s house and come to church for a much-needed reminder of the reason for all this fuss, we’re hard at work making sure their church experience is everything it should be.

Then we get ready to do it all again on Sunday.

It’s not that I’m complaining. I love every minute of it.

But I wanted to acknowledge this reality for one simple reason.

To say ‘thank you.’
