For unto us a Child is born!

Isaiah 9:6  For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given, and the government shall be upon His shoulder:  and His name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, the mighty God, the everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace.

Isaiah 40:1  Comfort ye, comfort ye my people, saith your God.  Speak ye comfort to Jerusalem, and cry unto her, that her warfare is accomplished, that her iniquity is pardoned.  The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make straight in the desert a highway for our God.  Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill made low, the crooked straight, and the rough places plain.

Save the Date - Fr. Fryar - University Series 2017

Fr. Fryar will be speaking again this year!  His topic will be:

At Mass: How do we enter into the Mystery of our Faith? In the Old Testament temple, and in classical churches, worshipers approached the altar through courtyards and vestibules. How is the Holy Mass set apart from our secular world today?  How do we progress in the Sacred Liturgy to enter into the Mysterium Fidei?
