The title of the triduum was: Aging and Advent: The Confluence of Hope, Despair and Generous Gratitude. The talks are a bit longer than an average homily. In addition I will include the prayers to which I refer with the exception of the Biblical references that will have verse number included. And of course a few photos. Note, for today's references see Luke chapters 2 and 3. I gave out a copy of the "O" Antiphons that will begin on 17 December. They are very easy to find on the internet.
A group of archdiocesan priests were at Campion today for a day of prayer. My job was to prepare the chapel for Eucharistic Adoration and Benediction at the end of the day. Decided to take the camera over earlier in the day. The light was doing its usual wonderful thing in the chapel, more so in the winter than in the summer because of the angle of light and the lack of leaves. Fortunately the tripod was in the trunk just outside the chapel.
The first is the setting sun coming through one of the windows on the west wall.
The next is two of the side altars. Note the silver crucifixes and candle holders. I just learned two weeks ago that Genevieve Brady, who gave much support to both this house and Wernersville, stipulated there was to be no gold in the chapel, only silver. Brilliant.
The next is a cloud of incense from the Eucharistic Adoration. One view is from ground level and the other from the first of the two choir lofts.
