The Light Shines in the Darkness

Merry Christmas!

This year, I would like to share with you some texts that are ripe for meditation on the birth of Christ. On Christmas morning, I took a video of the sunrise for your viewing pleasure, and I’ve put a bit of music in the background to keep it exciting.

Texts for Christmas meditation

  • Magnificat and antiphon from Christmas Evening Prayer I
  • Prologue from the Gospel of John (Christmas Day Gospel)
  • Christmas Proclamation
  • Luke 2:1-20 (Knox Translation)
  • Selection from Pope St. Leo’s Christmas Sermon (Office of Readings on Christmas Day)

Understanding the Mass Series

After two weeks of delays (planning took longer than I expected and then filming did too), I’ve finally finished the first episode of my Understanding the Mass series! In the first episode, we go from the beginning of the Mass up to the Liturgy of the Word.

Let me know what you think, I am definitely open to suggestions for the later episodes. Hopefully the writing, planning, filming, and editing go a little more smoothly for them!
