Run Time: approximately 10 minutes.

Epistle: Phil. 4:4-7 (Joy and Peace.)

Gospel: Jn. 1:19-28 (John the Baptist’s Testimony to Himself.)

…in the midst of our Advent penance and preparations, in the midst of our recognition of our need for a savior and really our unreadiness to receive Him. How much work has to be done – how much preparation there is that remains undone. The Church tells us, “Rejoice” using the words of St. Paul as he says: “In all things, rejoice.”

To Know The Mother

Run Time: approximately 7 minutes. Gospel: Lk 2:16-21.

To know the mother is to learn much of the Child. To see the mother is to see the measure of God’s love. That He consented to be carried and to be born, to be nursed and to be nurtured. To be taught. To be safe guarded. On this feast of Mary, Mother of God, we rejoice in her who is the sign of God’s own love, and of the humility to which He stooped to come into the world as our Savior.
