I love watching the Midnight Mass from St. Peter's on TV (and really miss watching John Cardinal O'Connor celebrate at St. Patrick's -- yes, I'm an odd Jew) but I admit I can't listen to the translation of Luke 2:10 as it's chanted without thinking about Linus reciting it. :-)
Congratulations, by the way, to John Patrick Cardinal Foley on his elevation last month! Odds are fairly good you've heard his voice, even if you've never seen his face.
Whoever and wherever you are, and whatever you believe or observe, I wish you all the best for a happy holiday season and a healthy new year.
