The New Roman Missal, First Sunday of Advent "Stir up Thy might, we beg Thee, and come."

A change throughout the whole world is taking place. We in these times are witnessing changes on every level of life. Not only do we see historic changes in weather, in economy, in the politics of many countries, especially in the Muslim Countries. Soon we will see a change within the Roman Catholic Church. Rumors of the world undergoing dramatic changes swirl in the air like leaves of Autumn following their course of Winter's wind. What we are witnessing seem to be summed up by these two poets.

"I like the feeling of danger in the cold Autumn air that carries a quiet warning that winter is on the way and that time is running short."
John J. Rowlands, Cache Lake Country

"Autumn is the time when seasons merge because of bare necessity."
Rod McKuen

Nature is speaking to us all. Our world is converging. We are seeing the growing pains and it is out of necessity. The Church too will take its place announcing the Lord and His wondrous purpose. We will all see His Majesty in great splendour. This New Missal will begin on the New Church Year Calendar, when Advent begins. The date will be November 27th, 2011.

Why is the Roman Missal changing? Well, only parts of the words are changing, and this is because the Church wants the words of the Mass to be a more true translation of the Latin. The music will also be changed to a more pure sound of Chant Song. Click the link below to hear what to expect for Christmas.

Nativity: The Christmas Proclamation

 "Come!" God is not deaf to His people's cry. "Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make His paths straight." Mark 1:1-8
This prophecy, spoken by Isaiah, is fulfilled by St. John the Baptizer, whose coming was foretold by the prophet Malachi: “Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee.” St. John was sent by God to prepare His people for the coming of Christ. He was to bring them to an awareness of their sins.
