2 FROM FR. JOE Merry Christmas everyone. Each time this year, I look for a special glimpse of the face of the Christ Child. If we look closely, in the faces of our loved ones and the story of our lives, we will see God With Us, Immanuel. Christmas is never a simple recalling of ancient history, but the experiencing of a living history! The spirit of the Christ Child is all around us. May our encounter with him bring us the same joy that the shepherds experienced that first Christmas day. It is long overdue that I thank you for what I consider a wonderful "Christmas gift." The staff and I were very moved by the generous response to Stewardship Sunday. We had many people make commitments, new and old, stepping forward in service, in sharing of time and talent. Thank you. If you haven't been contacted, we will be contacting you by this January. Or feel free to call in and talk to the staff. It makes such an impact when so many of you help us keep the Cathedral Parish vibrant, strong and welcoming. May this Christmas season be for all of you one filled with surprising and wonderful gifts! ~Fr. Joe Join our Flocknote to receive updates and text alerts about upcoming events: CathedralYoungAdults or text cathedral to If you have any questions or ideas, please contact Sarah Bradford at Cathedral & St. John s Young Adults is a collaboration between St. Francis Xavier Cathedral and St. John the Evangelist Parish, open to all young adults (18-39) in the diocese.

At His feet the six winged seraph, Cherubim with sleepless eye, Veil their faces to the presence, As with ceaseless voice they cry: Alleluia, Alleluia Alleluia, Lord Most High! ~Gerard Moultrie

3 CHRISTMAS PRAYER! Prayer to Jesus in the Manger O Divine Redeemer Jesus Christ, prostrate before Thy crib, I believe Thou art the God of infinite Majesty, even though I do see Thee here as a helpless babe. I humbly adore and thank Thee for having so humbled Thyself for my salvation as to will to be born in a stable. I thank Thee for all Thou didst wish to suffer for me in Bethlehem, for Thy poverty and humility, for Thy nakedness, tears, cold and sufferings. Would that I could show Thee that tenderness which Thy Virgin Mother had toward Thee, and love Thee as she did. Would that I could praise Thee with the joy of the angels, that I could kneel before Thee with the faith of St. Joseph, the simplicity of the shepherds. Uniting myself with these first adorers at the crib, I offer Thee the homage of my heart, and I beg that Thou wouldst be born spiritually in my soul. Make me reflect in some degree the virtues of Thy admirable nativity. Fill me with that spirit of renunciation, of poverty, of humility, which prompted Thee to assume the weakness of our nature, and to be born amid destitution and suffering. Grant that from this day forward, I may in all things seek Thy greater glory, and may enjoy that peace promised to men of good will. An Explanation of the Prayer to Jesus in the Manger In this prayer, we acknowledge that the Christ Child that we see in the manger, represented in our nativity scenes, is fully and completely God, the Creator of all. We see in this scene Christ as True God and True Man, and we recognize that the Son of God had to humble Himself to become man like us, and to live and suffer among us. We place ourselves in the scene with the angels and shepherds, with Mary and Joseph, and try to see Christ as they saw Him. In doing so, we unite ourselves more fully to Christ, and ask Him to help us conform our lives to His.
