Please note that there will be no daily masses at the parish office for the rest of the year. We are having the Novena of Early Morning Masses again this year (the first 5 masses with potluck breakfasts). They will be held 7:00 am at Windtower, 160 Kananaskis Way, from Dec. 17 to 21st. The nine masses include those held at Our Lady of the Snows Academy Dec 22nd to 25th.
Tomorrow, Monday, December 17th is our parishes’ turn to serve at the “Food and Friends” dinner at St. Michael’s Hall. Call Lorraine at (403) 609-3757 to help.
The Catholicism Series is finishing up. The final video is on December 18th at 7:00 pm and the topic is “The Last Things”.
There are two moments in life which bespeak the nature of God. The first is babyhood: small babies do little else but contemplate, in wonder, all that surrounds them. The second is the open and honest questioning of the child that has learned to use language. The Word Incarnate seems to spring out of that early use of words in a truly startling way.
When she comes to stay at my house, my eldest granddaughter loves to play with the nativity set in the form of Russian nesting dolls. The outermost layer represents St. Joseph (holding the donkey in his capable hands): next we find our Lady then a wise man, a shepherd and finally a tiny tiny baby Jesus. This part of the doll is of course indivisible.
“And what’s inside of Jesus?” asks the child. It is a rhetorical question. “What do you think?” The eyebrows raise over the wide eyed confidence of a five year old imparting her secret. “Love, of course.” Leonie Caldecott
