|The great Cardinal Burke places the Baby Jesus in the creche, Florence, 2017|
And to aid in your celebration, I gladly post, and direct your attention to, this wonderful Christmas sermon by Canon Francis Altiere of the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest. Canon Altiere is the Rector of Old St. Patrick's Oratory in Kansas City, whom I have had the pleasure of listening to before. Dr. Peter Kwasniewski heard Canon's Christmas sermon this year, received permission to publish it, and posts it today on New Liturgical Movement. I post it again here in case you did not see it. A beautiful Christmas reflection-- please reflect, why don't you?
