Resplendent in our eyes, the Christmas celebration continues.
Remember this is the octave, continue to celebrate!
The eight consecutive days afterward Christmas are a big celebration.
As a kid growing up at the church of St. Agnes in the city named for Saint Paul, located on the upper banks of the mighty Mississippi River, we had Solemn Mass at 10:00 a.m. each and every day of the octave. Needless to say, this was a big bonus for the spiritual and liturgical life of the parish.
