All the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God.
This is our second Covid Christmas, but it doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy the feast. The readings are inspirational and it is a great season for music. To adapt a prayer of St Augustine:
You have spoken, O God, and shattered our deafness and we can hear you in one like ourselves. Let celebrate the feast, then, in love and great joy. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
The Christmas weekend offers a rich selection — four sets of readings for Christmas Day and one for the feast of the Holy Family. To keep things simple, it seemed better this time to give the link to the relevant webpage on tarsus.ie, where all the material can be found. For the PDFs etc., click here.
Some inspiration: musical and poetical
For a bit of musical fun, you might like The Canadian Brass “take” on the Twelve Days of Christmas.

A Happy Christmas to all and every blessing in 2022.
