Catholic Online at Catholic.org breaks new ground with a highly interactive Christmas Advent site for 2008 on November 3rd. The ADVENT2008.org site features traditional content, contemporary stories and thoughts about Christmas, beautiful graphics, and the Holy Scripture’s story of Christmas, and then breaks with the “traditional” static display to encourage readers to share their stories, prayers, traditions in print or video with the entire Church worldwide audience of Catholic.org.
The features allow a person to ask for prayers, share their favorite Christmas memory, send Pope Benedict a Christmas card, and upload their children’s wish list in the tradition of Saint Nicholas. Additionally, a new feature encourages families everywhere to establish a Christmas Tradition that even their grandchildren might one day observe to anchor the “true” meaning of this wonderful holiday.
