Christmas Day at the Monastery

On Christmas morning we sang Lauds and Terce:  these antiphons  (as well as the antiphons at Sext and None at noon) tell us of Mary and the shepherds.  Mass followed at 8:00 a.m. 

At 5:00 p.m. we sang Vespers with the antiphons highlighting the divinity of Jesus “who was begotten before the daystar and before all ages.” 

That evening at 7:30 p.m. we sang Vigils of the Feast of the Holy Family and concluded with Compline.  What a beautiful way to celebrate The Liturgy of the Hours and have it form our Christmas Day!
