Talking at Rise Up About Attending Mass HOMILIES AND OCCASIONAL THOUGHTS - December 31, 2016 You may have looked in vain for my Christmas homily. I didn't use notes, so had nothing to post. All our celebrations went wonderfully, thanks to the very hard work of our choirs, sacristans, servers, florists, greeters, cleaners, snow shovellers, and countless others. The week has been a busy one, thanks to the fact that CCO's annual Christmas conference was held in Vancouver this year.

In the celebration of a mystery, ...http://rccommentary2.blogspot.com/2016/12/we-come-like-shepherds-who-followed.html
