Everything's ready...

After the last Mass of Advent at 7:00 a.m. this morning, everything has gone silent here.  We're ready for the Vigil to begin.

The creche is in the Lady Chapel, waiting for the Christ Child...






The St. Joseph Shrine is ready for devotion to the Foster-father of Our Lord...


The High Altar is ready for the celebration of the Holy Sacrifice...


The bread and wine are in the credence, ready to be taken to the altar for consecration...


And the Chapel of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus is prepared for Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, God With Us, to begin in the morning...


Adeste Fideles,
Laeti triumphantes,
Venite, venite in Bethlehem.
Natum videte
Regem angelorum.
Venite adoremus
Dominum.
