This weekend at St. Francis - Jan. 5th-6th
This weekend at St. Francis of Assisi
For many years in the English speaking world the feast of Epiphany has been overshadowed by that of Christmas. But unless we realize the significance of this great day, we see only one side of the mystery of the Incarnation. Now after contemplating the staggering fact that God has become a human child, we turn to look at this mystery from the opposite angle and realize that this seemingly helpless Child is, in fact, the omnipotent God, the King and Ruler of the universe. The feast of Christ's divinity completes the feast of His humanity. It fulfills all our Advent longing for the King "who is come with great power and majesty." We see that whereas Christmas is the family feast of Christianity, Epiphany is the great "world feast of the Catholic Church."

"Being Christian is not the result of an ethical choice or a lofty idea, but the

Due to the funeral that will take place at 10am, the 1st Saturday mass is cancelled this month. If you are doing the 1st Saturday devotion you can fulfill the obligation by attending the funeral mass, or going to mass twice this weekend. The Marian Cenacle will
