Yesterday, the Catholic Church began it's new missal reading year with the introduction of the new way of saying mass. Yes, the Advent (Christmas) season has begun.
But the questions remain is, should the catholic church force it's people to go close to the way of saying mass in Italian or should it be kept to be the way we, the English speaking community, understand it? That's going to be a general discussion that has begun at the start of yesterday.
As the Christmas season gets underway, it brings the acknowledgement that 2011 is coming to a close in about 4 weeks. Give or take: 33 days to be exact!
Some people would welcome this month again and sigh that the year is finally coming to pass. While 2012 is on the horizon soon, America has much on it's mind. From Politics, to the college sex scandals, to the illegal immigration people (and the many attempts to get them legal), to the economics that are suffering from the poor job market out there.
2012 will be one hell of a headache in a hand basket that this country will need to take some serious advil and some ginger ale soda and do some tough love on it's own self. Political thinking, it's going to be a tough year for the democrats as they must decide to either support President Obama or put up a better candidate. For the republicans: Newt Grinch appears to be the favorite, but some one's better than that.
However, I do think Hilliary Clinton ought to step back in the Presidential race as an Independent candidate. Just for her sake of her husband: Bill Clinton. If she does this, I am very sure she will get the votes to beat President Obama. This time, Obama can't ask her to step aside like the last time. This time, Hillary will get the win for sure. But who knows?
Let's hope it does not end up to be 2012 political circus.
