“Iconographic tradition has theologically interpreted the manger and the swaddling cloths in terms of the theology of the Fathers. The child stiffly wrapped in bandages is seen as prefiguring the hour of his death: from the outset, he is the sacrificial victim, as we shall see more closely when we examine the reference to the first-born. The manger, then, was seen as a kind of altar.”
— Pope Benedict XVI (2012)

Number 1

Practice this week will take place on Wednesday, 11 February 2015, at 7:00pm. The location will be at my home. We tried to avoid having rehearsal on Wednesday—since Meaghan has an organ concert at that time—but it was impossible to avoid (based on a serious conversation we had on Saturday with the choir).


Number 2

The Engagé members who attended practice yesterday, I will see you tonight at 6:30pm. If you could please bring enough Grey Hymnals into the choir loft for everybody, that would be a lovely gesture on your part and much appreciated. If not, no worries.

The Engagé members who could not attend yesterday, I hope to see you Wednesday!!!
