Please give a small gift to your family and friends by simply inviting them to come with you to the Latin Christmas Mass. Many Novus Ordo, non-practicing Catholics and other non-Catholics like to go to Midnight Mass for Christmas. When you invite someone, you may be surprised when they say; OK.
Take a few minutes to explain to them that it is very very beautiful and different. Something like a special Christmas classical music concert: inspiring, quiet, beautiful music, sacred and contemplative. Tell them it is in Latin and beautiful like the famous song “Ave Maria”.
This will also be a birthday gift to Jesus because you are doing what He said:
“And Jesus coming, spoke to them, saying:All power is given to me in heaven and in earth. Going therefore, teach ye all nations; baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and behold I am with you all days, even to the consummation of the world.” Matthew 28:18-20
