I think New Year’s resolutions are silly.
Since the eighth century, the Roman Church has been singing the “O” Antiphons. Between December 17 – 24, these antiphons are part of the evening prayer of the Divine Office and are attached to the Magnificat, the beautiful canticle of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
Recently I’ve been attending Sunday Mass with my sister, her husband, and their two little daughters.
"The most Blessed Virgin Mary was, from the first moment of her conception, by a singular grace and privilege of almighty God and by virtue of the merits of Jesus Christ, Savior of the human race, preserved immune from all stain of original sin."
What are you waiting for this Christmas?
