Christmas Ink Slingers Liturgical Year Martina Mary

Happy birthday, Jesus!




It’s Christmas, friends! From my family to yours, I want to wish you a very Merry Christmas! It’s hard to believe that a tiny Baby was born into this world to atone for our sins and open the gates to heaven, but that’s exactly what happened. Our powerful Savior humbled Himself to walk among us, to live like us, and to be like us in all things but sin. 

When I stop and think about that, it gives me chills. 


Because He came for me. Just like He came for you. He had you on His mind and to this day you are still on His mind. 

Whether you are celebrating with family and friends this holiday or you are alone, know that Christ is present with you. We are never truly alone. We are His and He is ours. 

Here is a beautiful prayer and after that is one of my favorite songs by Hillsong United – Oceans. 




By Martina Kreitzer

Martina is a cradle Catholic, wife to Neil, and mother to eight kiddos here {and three in heaven}– 4/96-12/19. She decided to homeschool the kiddos in 2010 after many years in public schools and is currently transitioning out of homeschooling. She is the creator of Catholic Sistas which focuses on a feminine perspective of the Catholic Faith. The website was the result of an existing camaraderie by the contributors in a Catholic women’s group she created. She is also a Seal of Approval evaluator for the Catholic Writers Guild. Lest you think she spends all her time online, Martina has enjoyed getting out into the community by serving on the Pastoral Council from 2010-2013. She is constantly on the lookout to make her parish as welcoming as the small town she grew up in East Texas. This task is not easy given that St. William is the largest parish in the Austin diocese, serving well over twenty thousand parishioners. She loves Jesus, coffee, bacon, chocolate, photography, more bacon, evangelizing, and the company of those unafraid to use their sense of humor.
