Christmas Mass Times

Christmas Eve Vigil 4PM and 8PM

Christmas Day 10 AM

Merry Christmas to all St. Bridget’s parishioners.  May this Solemnity of the Lord’s birth fill you and your families with great joy.  Once more we comtemplate the humility of the Most High who comes is born in poverty and great simplicity, beautifully captured by the words of St. Augustine:
He lies in a manger, but he holds the world.
He nurses at his mother’s breast, but he feeds the angels.
He is wrapped in swaddling clothes,
          but he robes us in the garment of immortality.
He is given milk, but at the same time he is adored.
He finds no room at the inn, but he builds a temple for himself
     in the hearts of all who believe.
That infirmity might be made strong, strength has been made weak.
Let us, therefore, not diminish but marvel all the more
          at his human birth.
Let us try to comprehend the humble stake he accepted for our sakes.
And then, let us be kindled with love,
          so that we may come to his eternal day.
St. Augustine’s Christmas sermons (#190)
May the humble joy of Christ’s birth warm your heart and home this Christmas.
