You can’t go anywhere these days without catching some Christmas music. Radio stations, stores and even airplanes are playing Christmas music. So keeping in the spirit of Christmas, I have compiled the ultimate top 10 list of music that Catholic youth leaders are reflecting on this year.
1.) Little Drummer Boy – For that teen that you have playing excellent liturgical drums at Mass each week.
2.) Silent Night – for those times when you simply bring the teens in front of the Blessed Sacrament in silence.
3.) Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow – for those of you planning ski trips to ski resorts in North Carolina, Virginia and West Virginia where there is no guarantee of snowfall this year.
4.) What Child is This – for those moments when you have so many Edge middle school kids coming that you can’t remember them or their name.
5.) I’ll Be Home For Christmas – for the spouses of workaholic youth leaders assuring them that you will be home for Christmas, at least a couple of hours.
6.) Breath of Heaven – How you hope your breath smells after staying up at an all night Jingle Jam Lock In at your parish.
7.) It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year – The feeling of unity you have with the core team after going on retreat or a training conference together.
8.) O Come All Ye Faithful – for those youth leaders who stick their necks out each week during announcements at Teen Mass and invite teens to come to Life Night.
9.) Grown Up Christmas List – for those youth leaders wanting the parents of teens to be more supportive.
10.) It Came Upon A Midnight Clear – for that moment that you realize that your budget is due tomorrow and you haven’t started it yet.
From our entire Life Teen staff to you and your family – Have a great Christmas!
