I am a huge fan of Bishop Robert Barron and have read his books, watched his film series Catholicism, and I follow his Word on Fire blog.  I am excited that Nativity will present his six-part film Pivotal Players in January and February.  I hope you all join us for spiritual renewal, catechesis, and fellowship.  Make 2017 the year you grow in faith and friendship with Jesus Christ!

Below are the readings for Christmas Day and a brief reflection from Bishop Barron:

Our Gospel for Christmas day is, of course, one of the most famous texts in the entire Bible: the Prologue to the Gospel of John. In many ways, it is the entire Gospel, indeed the entire Bible, in miniature. This scripture alludes to a feast day called "Christmas", a name that has rarely been reflected upon, at least in my lifetime. The day is Christmas, because it signals Christ’s Mass. The only fitting way to celebrate is to go to the Mass!

Mass Readings

Reading 1 - Isaiah 52:7-10
Psalm - Psalms 98:1-6
Reading 2 - Hebrews 1:1-6
Gospel - John 1:1-18

I pray you have had a grace-filled Advent season that has prepared you to meet Christ with joy at Christmas!

Merry Christmas!
