Christmas 2018 newsletter

In the Priory’s Christmas 2018 newsletter, Br. David Bryan writes:

The beloved bidding prayer for the Cambridge Advent Festival of Lessons and Carols says:

“…and because this of all things would rejoice his heart, let us at this time remember in his name the poor, the helpless, the hungry and the oppressed, the sick and those who mourn, the lonely and the unloved, the aged and the little children; and all those who know not the Lord Jesus, or who love him not, or by sins have grieved his heart of love.”

May we allow ourselves to encounter God’s grace during this hallowed time. The encounter might come as we hear the majestic words of holy scripture or the beauty of music; perhaps in the solemnity of ritual, colour and forms of decoration or in loving acts and generous care for others, and in places and times of quiet prayer.
