A few months ago, Diane and I had a very busy weekend. We celebrated the baptism of a nieceā€™s son. We celebrated the lives of a husband and wife who had died only hours apart. And, we celebrated our mutual birthday (we were both born on February 23rd) with four other couples that share the same birthday week, an annual tradition for over 20 years. In this podcast, Tony discusses celebrating.
Scripture: Hallelujah! Praise God in his holy sanctuary; give praise in the mighty dome of heaven. Give praise for his mighty deeds, praise him for his great majesty. Give praise with blasts upon the horn, praise him with harp and lyre. Give praise with tambourines and dance, praise him with strings and pipes. Give praise with crashing cymbals, praise him with sounding cymbals. Let everything that has breath give praise to the LORD! Hallelujah! ā€“Psalm 150 1:6
Always be ready to give an explanation to anyone who asks you for a reason for your hope, 1 Peter 3:15

Reflection: What do you celebrate? Is celebration at the center of your Catholic life? How do family traditions become our celebration?
