I enjoyed this talk, it’s about 40 min., but I think worth taking the time. Below is Archbishop Chaput’s comments from his facebook page
Archbishop Charles Chaput, Archdiocese of Philadelphia, delivers a forum address.
On March 22nd I had the pleasure of delivering a Forum Address at Brigham Young University, “Awakenings: Living as a Believer in the Nation We Have Now.” I’m sharing a link to the streaming video via BYUtv as well as the text via the Archdiocesan website.

May God bless you.
Balance is the key word here. Then love &respect for others.
This movie was done very nicely – check out the trailer 🙂
The Spirit of Christmas creates in our hearts a desire to give joy to others and to serve them. At this time of year we feel a spirit of giving and of gratitude for what we have been given. The celebration of Christmas helps us keep our promise to always remember the Savior and His gifts to us and, in turn, to serve others.
Each act of kindness to anyone becomes a kindness to the Savior because He loves all of Heavenly Father’s children. And because that brings joy to Him it also brings joy to His Father, to whom we owe thanks beyond measure.
Jesus Christ taught us that there is a way to give an even more priceless and lasting gift. He said: “I am the bread of life; he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst” (John 6:35). With all the kindnesses we give for Him, the greatest we can offer is to point those we love and serve toward Him, the only source of Eternal Life.
We bear witness of the living reality of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. May the peace and joy that come through Him be present in the lives and hearts of God’s children throughout the world this Christmas season.
—The First Presidency
