Friday 1 January 2021

Today we have too many things to celebrate! It is the eighth and final day of our extended celebration of Christmas. It is the solemn feast of Mary’s motherhood. It is a proclamation that Christ is both God and man, because we give Mary her title of Mother of God. It the day on which Our Lord was given his name Jesus, the one name by which we can be saved. It was on this day that Joseph proclaimed Jesus as his son at his circumcision, which was also the first time that Christ shed his blood for us and the day on which he entered into God’s covenant with the people of Israel in order to bring it to completion. And on top of all of that, we are beginning a new year. Happy 2021! #oxfordoratory
