The Holidays are upon us! Sharing Christ's Love this Advent Season

As the holiday season approaches, it's easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of preparations, shopping, and the rush of events. However, amidst the festivities, it's essential to remember the true essence of this season and the values it represents. This Advent at Fresh Catholic we will give gentle reminders to slow down, be wholly present, and demonstrate Christ's love and peace during the holidays.

In a world that constantly races against the clock, the holiday season offers a unique opportunity to slow down and savor moments with loved ones. Instead of getting lost in the frenzy, let's make a conscious effort to be wholly present at gatherings and family events. Be your authentic self, and let the love and peace of Christ shine through your interactions.

The holiday season is a time for spreading love and peace, just as Christ did during his time on Earth. If you encounter people who are feeling the stress of the season, offer them the calm that Christ abundantly gives. A warm smile, a kind word, or a listening ear can make a significant difference in someone's day.

In moments of stress or chaos, take a quiet moment to reflect on the reason for the season. Christ's birth, the ultimate gift of love, is at the heart of this celebration. As we prepare for festivities, let us remember the significance of this divine gift and share it with others through our actions and attitudes.

This holiday season, let's be our authentic selves. Embrace your faith, your values, and your unique qualities. Authenticity allows the love and peace of Christ to shine through us, touching the hearts of those we encounter. By being true to ourselves, we can better embody the spirit of the season.

One of the most meaningful ways to demonstrate Christ's love during the holidays is through acts of kindness and charity. Whether it's volunteering at a local shelter, donating to a cause, or simply helping a neighbor in need, these actions reflect the essence of Christ's teachings.

As the holiday season draws near, let us make a conscious choice to embrace the true spirit of this celebration. Let us demonstrate the love and peace of Christ in our interactions and extend a hand of calm to those feeling the stress of the season. And, in moments of chaos, let us remember the reason for the season – the birth of Jesus, the ultimate gift of love and salvation. By being our authentic selves and sharing Christ's love, we can make this holiday season a time of genuine joy, grace, and spiritual fulfillment for ourselves and those around us.

About Me


I’m Lori Balderas, I created this podcast for those who are converting, reverting or simply want a FRESH perspective of the Catholic faith to help them to open their hearts and minds to become closer to the love and goodness of Christ.

I converted to Catholicism at the age of 49.  It was, by far, the best decision I’ve ever made! I don’t claim to be an expert or Theologian, but what I DO know is that my heart is bursting with love for the Lord and I want others to feel the same way!  

I feel impassioned and drawn to Evangelize people by sharing my experiences and transformation that have gotten me where I am today.

I will be sharing my personal conversion story and speaking with others about theirs.
