December 29, 2019

Rosary & Confessions Sunday, 3:30 PM
Low Mass Sunday, 4:00 PM

Next Mass – On Sunday, December 29th at 4:00 PM, Mass will be offered by Fr. Rene Trincado at St. Dominic’s chapel. This is the Sunday a few days after Christmas. We welcome everyone to stay afterwards for a Christmas potluck and Christmas carols with organ accompaniment! We have booklets available with lyrics to many popular religious Christmas carols, so everyone can join in.
Hymns for Mass – O Come All Ye Faithful, Corde Natus ex Parentis, Puer Natus in Bethlehem, and Good Christian Men Rejoice. (Many more to be sung after the Potluck!)
2020 Calendars – There are beautiful, Traditional Catholic calendars available in the back of the chapel. Every family should take one.
Important Book for Sale – An important book proving and demonstrating 101 recent changes in the SSPX was released in mid-September. Copies are available in the back of the chapel for $25 each. (They are shrink wrapped in bundles of 2 to preserve their newness; please feel free to break the shrink wrap if you only want 1 book). The book is entitled, “As We Are? 101 Compromises, Changes, and Contradictions of an SSPX in Pursuit of a Practical Accord with Modernist Rome” by Sean Johnson. This book is an excellent resource to inform and wake up Catholics who might be ignorant about the true situation with the SSPX.

Epistle Reading (Gal 4:1-7)
Brethren: As long as the heir is a child, he differeth nothing from a servant, though he be lord of all; But is under tutors and governors until the time appointed by the father: So we also, when we were children, were serving under the elements of the world. But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent his Son, made of a woman, made under the law: That he might redeem them who were under the law: that we might receive the adoption of sons. And because you are sons, God hath sent the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying: Abba, Father. Therefore now he is not a servant, but a son. And if a son, an heir also through God.
Gospel Reading (Luke 2:33-40)
At that time, Joseph and Mary, the mother of Jesus, were wondering at those things which were spoken concerning him. And Simeon blessed them, and said to Mary his mother: Behold this child is set for the fall, and for the resurrection of many in Israel, and for a sign which shall be contradicted; And thy own soul a sword shall pierce, that, out of many hearts, thoughts may be revealed. And there was one Anna, a prophetess, the daughter of Phanuel, of the tribe of Aser; she was far advanced in years, and had lived with her husband seven years from her virginity. And she was a widow until fourscore and four years; who departed not from the temple, by fastings and prayers serving night and day. Now she, at the same hour, coming in, confessed to the Lord; and spoke of him to all that looked for the redemption of Israel. And after they had performed all things according to the law of the Lord, they returned into Galilee, to their city Nazareth. And the child grew, and waxed strong, full of wisdom; and the grace of God was in him.
