At Jesus’ birth, one of the Magi presented a startling gift—myrrh (Mt 2:11). In the ancient Middle East, myrrh was a resin used for embalming. It was a bittersweet gift, acknowledging both new life and death.
The Gift of Myrrh reflection asks us to acknowledge our own “brokenness” and re-affirm living by the power of Jesus’ death and resurrection.
"Living with our family Christmas ideals and realities" explores the imperfect reality of life and the often unrealistic expectations that affect our experience of Advent and Christmas. Fr. Stephan and Dcn. Alex will consider the sources of disillusionment and provide strategies to spiritually deal with suffering.
Please join us for this spiritually enriching morning.
The $25 registration fee includes morning refreshments.
