Alleluia (Mt 4:16)
R. Alleluia, alleluia. The people who sit in darkness have seen a great light, on those dwelling in a land overshadowed by death light has arisen. R. Alleluia, alleluia.
We come to the close of the Christmas Season with tomorrow’s feast of the Baptism of the Lord. Together with Mary, the Mother of the Lord, we have treasured all these things and reflected on them in our heart. Of the hidden life of the Lord, the thirty or so years spent in Nazareth with Mary and Joseph, we know almost nothing, but all is revealed in the light of his public ministry. Today on my birthday, we have one of my favorite carols and our last of this Christmas Season, Los Peces En El Rio (The Fishes in the River).
