Every year on the Third Sunday of Advent, families gather in St. Peter’s Square in Rome for ‘Bambinelli Sunday’. Children and adults bring with them the figures of the Christ Child, ‘the Bambinelli’, from their family Nativity scene. During the Angelus prayer the Pope blesses the people and the figurines they have brought.
Fr. Mike will give this same special blessing at the 10:30 a.m. Mass on Sunday, December 14th. Children and adults, we encourage you to bring the Baby Jesus from your Nativity to this Mass! The OLG Youth Group will be available in the back of church after the blessing to wrap your Baby Jesus so that this most special gift can then be placed under your tree to be the first gift opened before all other gifts on Christmas morning! Then place the newborn Baby Jesus in his manger for all to adore!
We acknowledge Christ really present in the Blessed Sacrament; therefore, adoration of the Incarnate God is most worthy. Eucharistic Adoration is prayer before the Blessed Sacrament exposed in a monstrance, continued by successive worshipers day and night without intermission.
