Jesus never promised us it would be easy to be His follower.
“Then Jesus said unto His disciples, ‘If any man will come after Me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow Me.'” -Matthew 16:24
If you are discouraged by the increasingly virulent War on CHRISTmas and the recent news about satanic “holiday” displays in state capitols and satanic invocations in city council meetings, don’t be.
atheists and satanists may succeed in banishing Nativity scenes and the Ten Commandments from public places, but that won’t stop Christians from exercising their First Amendment right of free speech by proclaiming Jesus and His birth in flash mobs.
Below is the video of a flash mob of students from the Catholic 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 is fast becoming a regular College tradition. Last year’s inaugural “mob” was so widely and well received — generating nearly 50,000 views and coverage from EWTN’s World Over — that students were especially enthusiastic about doing it again, preparing in their spare time for weeks in advance.
Sing, choirs of angels, sing in exultation,
Sing, all ye citizens of Heaven above!
Glory to God, glory in the highest:
O come, let us adore Him,
Christ the Lord.
So when you feel despair for America’s future welling up inside you, just remind yourself that there are still young people like these college students, especially the lead singer (circled) and her sublime soprano.
