This year you’re invited to celebrate Advent and Christmas with your favorite Catholic influencers. So pour yourself a glass of eggnog and prepare to get into the spirit of the season by watching “The Great, Big Christmas Show,” livestreamed on Dec. 12.
Social media sensation Father David Michael Moses will host this 30-minute variety show alongside several well-known Catholic names. Join Leah Darrow as she bakes cookies with her family from her kitchen, hear poetry on the Incarnation with James Matthew Wilson, and sing your favorite Christmas songs with Father Rob Galea. These are just some of the names that will take part in this Christmas special produced by the University of St. Thomas-Houston MAX Studios.
Moses, a priest with the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston, currently serves as parochial vicar at Christ the Good Shepherd in Spring, Texas. Ordained in 2019 at the age of 25, this young priest is well-known for using social media to evangelize young people. In an interview with CNA, he expressed his hope that viewers will be filled with “joy” after watching the show.
“Like Father Mike [Schmitz] says, ‘Joy is choosing what you focus on.’ Joy is choosing what you focus on. And that’s the message of the Gospel. That’s the message of Christmas,” he said.
