Reflecting on 21 Centuries of Faith

Feast of Adam & Eve

On the old calendar, today is the Feast of Adam and Eve. In the Germanic countries, many families put up their Christmas or Paradise trees. The tradition finds its origin in the European Passion Plays which were performed in accordance with the particular feast of the day.

As we have mentioned in previous posts, first we fast then we feast. Christmas Eve we celebrate the fall of man and then on the Feast of the Incarnation we celebrate the Hope of our Glory. The Son of God condescends Himself from the Blessed Trinity to become the Word made flesh.

Blessings to you who are preparing for Christmas. Parents with young kids…well, you know…
