Today we have the second part (we read the first part yesterday) of the Gospel story that we heard on Sunday for the Feast of the Holy Family.  Today the 84 year old prophetess, Anna, encounters Jesus and recognizes Him as the Promised One.

As I mentioned in yesterday’s email, there isn’t a video today and there won’t be one any other day this week as we are catching our breath and preparing for the upcoming weekend.  We should be able to resume the daily Liturgy of the Word videos again next week, however.

Greetings Dear STA Parishioners and Special Friends:

I hope you had a blessed Christmas and a wonderful celebration of the Holy Family yesterday.  Continued blessings to you and those close to you.

Deacon Tony…knowing how swamped I was with a multitude of things…produced today’s video at home so that we could have a video this week.  It will most likely be the only one this week as we now turn our focus to the upcoming New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day Masses.

Many, many thanks Deacon Tony!

Merry Christmas to All:

I hope you had a beautiful and holy celebration of Christmas over the past 2 days.  I know we were truly blessed by everyone’s joyful presence at Church and on our live feed broadcasts.

Shalom, Y’All and Merry Christmas:

We find ourselves on the eve of His birth and we are finally able to turn our full focus to that first coming and all that it means to us.  We are able to fully celebrate His Incarnation into this world.

In today’s Gospel, Zechariah…the father of John the Baptist…proclaimed “He has raised up for us a mighty Savior, born of the house of His servant David.”  Well…there you go.  That is what this is about. And for that we say “Thanks be to God.”
