Merry Christmas, my dear readers! (And no, it’s not belated: Christmas is an octave lasting until the Solemnity of the Blessed Virgin Mary on January 1st–also a holy day of obligation.) I’m on hiatus for a little longer, but I wrote the post linked to below for Beneath the Tangles’ Twelve Days of Christmas Anime series. The post is essentially a meditation on how episode six of Re-Kan! reminds me of what God wished to accomplish in sending Christ to Earth. I manage to quote G. K. Chesterton and my patron saint, St. Leo the Great, in this post–both of whom have written very eloquently on Christmas.
