Apostolic Christmas Trees
I have always been quite scrupulous, maybe I have been a bit neurotic and not put up a tree in the house until Christmas Eve. Well the truth is I normally don't get a chance to do it on Christmas Eve, after a few hours of confessions and organising decorating the Church, I am too tired. I'm tired too on Christmas day and besides it is a Holy Day and one is supposed to rest from sevile work so, I feel a bit embarassed to say this, they go up on Boxing Day, or even the day after.
BUT look you here! The Apostolic Christmas Trees are erected today, a huge pine tree in St Peter's Square and in the Audience Hall there is one with decorations on it!!! Although there are no lights or candles but is up with tinsell and ribbons.
