"Are we prepared to promote conditions in which the living contact with God can be reestablished? For our lives today have become godless to the point of complete vacuity. God is no longer with us in the conscious sense of the word. He is denied, ignored, excluded from every claim to have a part in our daily life." - Alfred Delp, S.J.

Trimming your house for Christmas: Acorns are quite decorative.

Acorns are very Catholic as well.

They were also sacred to pagans and symbolic of the gods.  The sacred tree of Thor was an oak tree.  The acorn is a symbol of fertility and immortality.

Tuck them into garlands, swag about a lovely column - add into festive floral arrangements and wreaths and rings, or include them into the Holiday Tree branches.  You can even gild them, or add glitter and moss.  Couple them with evergreens, pheasant feathers, mistletoe, and antlers for a genuine forest look.

It's a good thing.
