C & E Catholics

Tomorrow night, and on Christmas Day, every Catholic Church in the world will be crowded with people we will not see again until Easter. These two Christian Holy days draw people to Mass in droves. They dress to the hilt, some come drunk, and most receive holy communion. Is it lax family tradition that draws them to Mass just twice a year, or is it the grace of God encouraging their souls to overcome their lukewarm spirituality?

Or maybe, they just don't recognize the church when it's not all decorated in pointsettas and Easter lilies.
