Worship with the Saint Benedict Catholic Church Family
Morning of Reflection
On December 7, 2013, The Lilies of the Holy Trinity Women’s Society of Saint Benedict Church will be holding a Morning of Reflection. The morning will begin with Mass at Saint Benedict Church at 8:30, and will then be followed by a two-part art series given by Rev. Msgr. Mark Richard Lane, Vicar General. The first series will look at images of Mary in art. Using Marian symbolism, Msgr. Lane will demonstrate how the life of Mary is presented in selected pieces of art. In keeping with the Advent season, the second part of the series will be a presentation entitled: "Who Invited All These People?" and will look at the history of the Christmas crib.
For more details, see this post on Msgr. Lane's blog, New Eyes on Art.
This event will begin at Saint Benedict Church for Mass, and the Art presentation will take place in St. Anselm Hall at Saint Benedict Parochial School. Breakfast will be served. The event is free and all are invited.
In his blog post on the language of symbol in hymns, Msgr. Lane writes, "In the context of the Eucharist especially, in all its rites, symbolic texts point beyond themselves and invite us to participate in that to which they point: the mysterious and the Incarnational. This will become especially instructional as we move through the Advent Season with its great hymns of anticipation and wonder." Enjoy this setting of Veni, Veni Emmanuel.
