Christmas Homily 2015

This is the 7-minute version of the homily I gave for Christmas, today at the home of a family outside of DC (see above picture for the outside of their home on this tropical 70 degree Christmas outside the Capital.)  It was originally slated for my very first Missa Solemnis at midnight south of here.

St. John the Baptist

During the second Sunday of Advent, “when John heard in prison about the deeds of the Christ, he sent word by his disciples and said to him, ‘Are you the one who is to come, or shall we look for another?’ And Jesus answered them, ‘Go and tell John what you hear and see: the blind receive their sight and the lame walk, lepers are cleansed and the deaf hear, and the dead are raised up, and the poor have good news preached to them. And blessed is the one who is not offended by Me.'”—Matthew 11:2-6
