Very Rev. Jim Heiser
Homily 4th Sun. of Advent

                                           “My Soul Magnifies the Lord”

Mary said: “My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord;
my spirit rejoices in God my savior.
For he has looked upon his lowly servant.
From this day all generations

will call me blessed:
the Almighty

has done great things for me,
and holy is his Name.
He has mercy

on those who fear him
in every generation.
He has shown the strength of his arm,
and has scattered the proud

in their conceit.
He has cast down the mighty

from their thrones
and has lifted up the lowly.
He has filled the hungry with good things, and the rich he has sent away empty.
He has come to the help of his servant Israel for he remembered his promise of mercy,
the promise he made to our fathers, to Abraham and his children for ever.”

Mary remained with Elizabeth about three months and then returned to her home.
                                       -Luke 1:46-56

               Children’s Christmas Mass

The Children’s Christmas Mass will be December 24
at 5:30PM.  We would love to have the children doing
as much of the Mass as possible. Everything from the
procession in with the Nativity Scene to singing, altar
serving and also the readings.  We will have further
details on practice times as it gets closer.  We'll plan
a practice the Sunday before (Dec 21) after the 10AM
Mass and another practice on the 23rd or 24th
of December, depending on what works better for families.
