theotokosThe Octave Day of Christmas, Solemnity of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Mother of God

“O God, Who by the fruitful virginity of blessed Mary hast bestowed upon mankind the rewards of eternal salvation: grant, we beseech Thee, that we may experience her intercession for us, through whom we have been made worthy to receive the Author of Life, Jesus Christ Thy Son, our Lord: Who with the liveth and reigneth.”

(Collect from the Mass in the Extraordinary Form for the Octave-Day of the Nativity – the Circumcision of our Lord)

20 + C + M + B + 17

We are in the midst of the beautiful Christmas Season (December 25, 2016 – January 8, 2017). On the Epiphany (celebrated on January 8th this year) we will bless our home in accordance with tradition and with our desire to live in a home blessed by Christ.

St. John the Baptist provided a form for the Epiphany House Blessing for its parishioners. We are posting a copy of that blessing for your use here. The USCCB has another version of the blessing here.

May you and all in your home be blessed abundantly by God during this New Year!


A Most Important Matter: For at least two weeks, the bulletin has noted the alarming, disturbing and most frightful news – the large coffee pot is missing.

If anyone has borrowed the Church’s large coffee pot can they please return it.
 We here at the Sheep of Kephas blog take this hopefully temporary loss of church property most seriously. This is especially true because there are some scurrilous rumors that the pot was taken hostage by a strange looking man and a rather smelly dead horse driving a pink 1961 rambler.
My wife and I both questioned Fre3d Capra and Petition my dead horse and they both vehemently deny that there is any substance to these rumors. We trust them implicitly and state here for the record, “We at the Sheep of Kephas blog know nothing concerning the loss of the aforementioned coffee pot.”
Fre3d and Petition suggested that perhaps Peyton and Priscilla Gard3ner be questioned about the loss. Although Peyton and Prissy are not real, there have been many other things that have happened here at St. Peter’s since June of 2014 that have been rather unreal.
Whatever that eventual outcome might be concerning the coffee pot, we earnestly pray to St. Drogo, who is the patron saint of coffee and coffeehouses, to help St. Peter’s find its missing coffee pot.
