Hi  everyone,


We are into the second week of Advent, and I wish you all a very blessed season.  I've been laying low with a bad cold, but hope to deepen my prayer life this Advent.


I do try to pray the hours, and hope to be more faithful.  I am also reading Isaiah with the footnotes.  I will pull up the "O Antiphons" in the Cloisters--which has become more a prayer room, but please post any comments or discussion in either place.


A blessed Advent to you all.

Hi, Misty,


I haven't posted anything for a couple years, but I got to wondering: am I the only one who wishes the celebration of the Nativity of Our Lord was like other solemnities? You know, special Mass times, maybe extra confessions/adoration, go to Mass, and go home, without all the other distracting, uber-commercial and even anti-religious nonsense/crap/garbage/stuff [pick one to your liking]?

Hi,


Welcome back,


I sure do agree that commercialism has gotten way out of hand.  I do love the joy and fellowship of Christmas time and I love the lights and decorations (including a nativity scene, of course), but the obsession with gifts really is a big downer.  I do buy for the grandkids, but very little else.


I am still praying the hours and reading Isaiah.  Are you doing anything spicial?

No. I'm the choir cantor at 10:00 "midnight" Mass, but that's all. I'd really prefer to just have a one-man retreat with reading, listening, and prayer, but that isn't an option for me this year.

Please join us for reflections on the o antiphons in the CLOISTERS  starting tomorrow.
