Happy New Year! And Merry Chrisbris!
Since Cacciaguida has coined the perfect word to describe the old Feast of the Circumcision, I figure I need to use it as often as possible.
Not that I'm dissing the Feast of Mary, Mother of God. Heck, no. Considering how many people on the Internet seem to be closet Nestorians, we need to proclaim that Mary is Theotokos as often as we can. But heck, if you don't believe Mary's the Mother of God, you're well on your way to becoming either an Arian (Jesus isn't God, he's just really special) or a Docetist (Jesus was just God wearing an elaborate costume. He didn't really share in our human pains and troubles; he just pretended that he did.)
But it does seem anti-ecumenical to give up the Feast of the Circumcision, doesn't it?
