I don’t know about you guys, but sometimes I forget that when Jesus says something, He really means it. Like when He says, “I am the living bread which came down from heaven; if anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever,” He really means that. Or when He says, “Your sins are forgiven,” they actually are forgiven. It’s just so easy for me to forget that.
I just love Christmas. Who doesn’t? All the parties, sweets, time with family and friends you could hope for. There are endless holiday Pandora stations to choose from and classic movies like White Christmas and Miracle on 34th Street on repeat. And if you’re fortunate enough to actually walk in a winter wonderland, roast chestnuts on an open fire, or rock around the Christmas tree, you are having the perfect American Christmas.
That’s it. I’ve had it with mainstream music.

Since the pontificates of Pope Paul VI and John Paul II, the Roman Catholic Church has been commissioned to engage and embrace the world with God's message of love once more with ‘new methods, new ardor and new expression.’ It has come to be phrased, 'the new evangelization.'
For FOCUS, this means meeting college students across the nation where they are and challenging them to examine the meaning and purpose of their lives. Through personal relationships and friendship, we offer college students the true peace and fulfillment they seek in the good news of Jesus Christ and the teachings of the Catholic faith, inviting them to answer His calling in their lives.
