"A Christmas Carol"
by Charles Dickens
{my yearly December 24th tradition}
(I read this book for the first time in 1962,
after the first broadcast of Mr. Magoo's Christmas Carol.
Since then, I've read it every year around Christmas, but I don't
remember when I decided to make December 24th my day to read this

A Different Sunday Schedule

I'm using a different schedule from the one I usually follow
on Sundays. First of all, I usually light my Sunday candle (electric, for safety!) and pray
Evening Prayer 1 at 6:30PM or thereabouts. This evening, however, I ushered in my Sunday
at 5:00PM, which was Midnight in Bethlehem.
Usually, at 1:00 AM, I am asleep; today I'll be watching Midnight Mass on EWTN . The Mass will
be rebroadcast, but I'd much rather see it live!
