“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)

Brilliant Idea for A Parish Fundraiser
published 13 September 2015 by Fr. David Friel

HIS JUST IN from the Catholic Memes page on Facebook. Those in search of a promising parish fundraiser might take their lead from a Protestant congregation that has crafted an inventive new feature of their music program.

(N.B. Please understand that this post—and I presume this congregation’s fundraiser—are meant to be lighthearted.)
