Lazy morning. We have a houseful–three of our own offspring, two spouses, and three grandchildren. Brenda and I slipped out a 9:45 to head across town to St Luke’s for their regular 10:30am liturgy We duly kept the Fourth Sunday of Advent, and confirmed one adult to add to everyone’s joy. Wonderful post-liturgical repast of Corsican beef stew, Filipino egg rolls, and empanadas. Back to lazing around the house with the family through the afternoon before heading to the cathedral for the 5:30 Mass, where I preached. After some more family time at home, back to St Paul’s for the “Midnight” Mass, where I preached and celebrated. Hodie Christus natus est.
