St. Anthony Parish: Two Masses This Weekend...St George Orthodox Cathedral: Christmas Concert...Our Lady of Clear Creek Abbey, Abbey Editions: First Publication...Elvis Presley: Let Us Pray (Change Of Habit 1969) Video
There are two traditional Latin Masses this weekend at St Anthony Catholic Church. The first is 9 A.M. on Saturday for the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary, which is a Holy Day of Obligation, and the other is our regular 8 A.M. on Sunday. The Sunday Mass is a low Mass so there will also be a rosary beginning at 7:35.
Sunday, Dec 9 4pm, The St George Orthodox Cathedral, 7515 E 13th is having a concert of Christmas hymns, Ancient Byzantine and Slavic. There are no instruments. Their sound is wonderful. It is free.
Next year likewise we intend to publish the first extensive biography in English of Dom Prosper Guéranger, founder of the Solesmes Benedictine Congregation and author of The Liturgical Year. Providing quality books on religious subjects is one way by which we strive to participate in the evangelization or re-evangelization of a world much in need of spiritual renewal.
Here is a summary of Light and Strength:
Born in 1845, at the age of eleven, providential circumstances brought young Jenny Bruyère under the spiritual tutelage of Dom Prosper Guéranger, abbot of Saint-Pierre of Solesmes. Under his spiritual guidance she blossomed and became, at the age of 25, the foundress and first abbess of the Benedictine abbey of Sainte-Cécile of Solesmes.
In her hidden contemplative life, Mother Cécile Bruyère eventually formed and guided souls with repercussions well beyond her monastery walls, furthering the spiritual edifice which Dom Guéranger had established.
This biographical work is at once a fascinating account of religious life in post-Revolutionary France, an exposition which brings to light the interior life of a great woman of God and her teachings as a religious superior, and a revealing analysis of a little known dimension of Dom Guéranger's life and work.
