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.

Gregorian Chants are a Hit at this Nebraska Seminary

Spending 13 weeks at the top of the classical music charts, a group of priests are reinvigorating an early musical genre. 

A recent chart-topping musical recording came from a group you wouldn’t expect in a place you wouldn’t expect.

When you hear Gregorian chants, ancient churches and monasteries in Europe may come to mind, but these chants are thousands of miles and hundreds of years closer.

Tucked away on the plains of Eastern Nebraska, you will find Our Lady of Guadalupe Seminary. The sounds coming from inside the church here bring the past right into the present.
