From the Rector: Fourth Sunday of Advent

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

On behalf of Bishop Wall, Fr. Block, Deacon Copeland, Deacon Sullivan, and the whole staff at Sacred Heart Cathedral I want to wish all of you a most Blessed and Merry Christmas.

May the newborn Christ child find a warm and receptive place in your hearts, and may his birth bring you joy and consolation. May your love for the tiny infant Son of God, inspire you to love others as he has loved you. Below are the words to one of my favorite Christmas songs, written by Julie Miller.

In Christ the newborn King,
-Fr. Keller

What kind of King would leave His throne
In Heaven to make this earth His home?
While men seek fame and great renown
In lowliness our King comes down
Jesus, Jesus, precious one
How we thank You that You’ve come
Jesus, Jesus, precious one
A manger throne for God’s own son
You left the sound of angels’ praise
To come for men with unkind ways
And by this Baby’s helplessness
The power of nations is laid to rest
Jesus, Jesus, precious one
How we thank You that You’ve come
Jesus, Jesus, precious one
A manger throne for God’s own son
What kind of King would come so small
From glory to a humble stall?
That dirty manger is my heart too
I’ll make it a royal throne for You
Jesus, Jesus, precious one
How we thank You that You’ve come
Jesus, Jesus, precious one
A manger throne for God’s own son
