The songs and hymns were pleasantly familiar … to the point where after twelve years I could play by heart every song in the ‘Breaking Bread’ hymnal.
The 4th Sunday of Advent is dedicated to Mary.
Preparing this blog, I discovered interesting snippets about the hymn, the composer, the translator, and even the poet who penned these lines in Latin!

I searched through the pages and could not find any reference to who put this hymn compilation together—although it seems to have been created about 30 years ago…
Many of the faithful here have not partaken of the Eucharist for many, many months.
