Christmas Eve

As we prepare our minds, hearts, and souls for His coming on this Christmas Eve, here’s a video of a flash mob of students from the Thomas Aquinas College singing holy Christmas songs at the Pacific View Mall in Ventura, southern California.

The Thomas Aquinas College in Santa Paula, Calif., reports that on December 6, 2014, some 150 Thomas Aquinas College students descended on Ventura’s Pacific View Mall to stage a choral “flash mob.”

After stealthily gathering around the mall’s Christmas central lobby — by the Santa Claus photo center — the students simultaneously burst into song. They began with “Angels We Have Heard on High” and “O Come, All ye Faithful,” and then concluded with a rousing rendition of “Go Tell it on the Mountain.” The mall’s surprised customers and employees seemed to delight in the performance, stopping whatever they were doing to take in the music, to sing along, and to cheer afterward.

Organized by sophomore Giorgio Navarini, the yuletide event has become a regular College tradition.

May the peace and love of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you,

    • Jumping Jehoshaphat . . . Amen to that! What more could possibly be said than . . . “Let the spark of life born on Christmas illuminate all our lives to do what is right and just.” That should be the quest of each and every soul who wishes to return to the presence of their God.

  2. Whether born on Christmas or not, Christ’s birth was a mighty, and world-changing event, the devil would know his own defeat by Christ.

    It is good to see this sort of thing, for music is one way to combat the evil that would try to take this day. A Merry Christmas to all, and to all a Good (Day, and) Night.

  4. I always knew the song “Amen” was a powerful old spiritual classic, but until just a few years ago, I never thought of it as a Christmas song. Then I heard it performed by Ernie Haase and Signature Sound, and it’s now one of my favorites. From “See the little baby, wrapped up in the manger” to “He’s coming back to take us home”, it tells the gospel story.

    Merry Christmas everyone!

  7. Well, my internet is out again, so I am writing this on my Android. (The super moved out and cancelled the wifi service. I will buy a jet-pack).
    This made my day, and now I will go out and Uber it.
    I wish everyone at FOTM a Blessed Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. I will be back soon. God Bless everyone.

  12. Great, great good stuff! An amazing performance, really, when I put it against what our Saanich Songmen do, when these young people only have a short time to prepare. And SEE the on-lookers: eyes leaking, spontaneous outbursts of happiness, smiles, even physical contact brought on, children DELIGHTED by what they experience as each has fulfillment of the Promise made [‘…allow the children to be brought near me.’], all brought on by our love of Him who IS the season.

    Amazing, really, and a powerful reminder of what true diversity is about. My eyes started leaking at 5:39 when a fellow gently slaps the shoulder of someone he knows, likely 1st time ever. For a tough old sinner I cannot fathom my behaviour over the years, especially at this best of all times.
