fourth Sunday of advent
Dear Parishioners,
As we come to this last Sunday of Advent,
our excitement is peaking in anticipation of
the holiest day of the year. We are ready to
welcome the many guests that come to visit
our Cathedral on Christmas. Our parish
home is decorated. Inside, the trees are lit,
and the poinsettias and roses are hung.
Outside the crèche proclaims the coming of
the Lord. “Prepare the way for the Lord . . .
And all mankind shall see the salvation of
God.” [Isaiah 40:3, Luke 3:6]

Please help me welcome all who will come to our parish home to celebrate the
birth of the newborn king on Christmas, and may this holy time bring you the
peace of silence, the joy of happiness and the wonder of God’s presence
among us.
Yours In Christ,

Around the Parish
O Antiphons-Advent Evening Prayer
The “O Antiphons” refer to the seven antiphons that are recited (or chanted)
preceding the Magnificat during Vespers of the Liturgy of the Hours. They cover
the special period of Advent preparation known as the Octave before Christmas,
now through December 23. They will be held nightly in the D’Youville Chapel at
6 pm during this time and 7 pm on the 19th and 20th. Please join us! Vespers will
also take place on Christmas Night at 7 pm in the Cathedral.
Parish Offices Closed
The Parish Offices at the Cathedral will be closed in
observance of Christmas from Wednesday, December 23
through Friday, December 25. The offices will reopen on
Monday, December 28 and close again December 31 and January 1 so our staff
may spend time with their families. Sacramental emergency requests will be
handled by the duty priest.
Readings & Carols
The Cathedral Choir of Christ the King will celebrate its
annual presentation, A Candlelight Service of Readings
and Carols, on Sunday evening, December 20 at 7:30
pm. This wonderful Cathedral tradition combines the
prophetic expectation of Advent with the joyful
fulfillment of Christ’s birth. The superb visual and
acoustic environment of the Cathedral will be enhanced
by sparkling illuminations of the church’s stained-glass
windows, candlelight and renditions of many beloved
Christmas carols. This year’s presentation will offer a “sneak-preview” of all the
favorite Christmas carols of the season .…from Silent Night to O Come All Ye
Faithful. For more information call the Cathedral Concert Line at 404-233-2145,
extension 820. PLEASE NOTE: The 7:15 Mass will be moved to Kenny Hall. The Advent Wreath
The Advent wreath, one of our most important Advent
traditions, is a circle, made of evergreen branches that has
no beginning or end. The circular shape of the Advent
Wreath is used to symbolize God the Father and eternal life.
The wreath holds four candles that are lit over the four
weeks of Advent. Traditionally, each of the four candles on an Advent wreath has
their own meaning. The lighting of the last purple candle of Advent symbolizes
Peace, reminding us of the message of the angels: “Peace on Earth, Good Will
Toward Men.”

Stewardship of Treasure
How shall I repay the Lord for his goodness to me?” Psalm 116
When he discovered that Mary was with child, Joseph resolved to end their engagement with
as little disgrace as possible. But obedient to the voice of God, he changed those plans and
became instead the protector of the child Jesus and his mother, Mary. God grant that I may
be as open to the leading of the Holy Spirit!
Second Collection for Christmas Eve/Christmas Day
The Christmas Eve and Christmas Day second collection will benefit Catholic
Charities Atlanta. Catholic Charities Atlanta is an advocate and friend for
individuals and families facing adversity. They provide a holistic combination of
accredited social services—life skills education, counseling, family stabilization,
and immigration legal services—that remove barriers to self-sufficiency and
wholeness. Their impact in our community is real and measurable. Last year they
served nearly 18,000 clients in north Georgia. Please give generously where it truly
counts. Help Catholic Charities to provide help and create hope for individuals
and families in need in Georgia.

Many thanks to the parents and
children that joined us for caroling in
the neighborhood of the Cathedral.
We took great joy in touching lives
with our songs, making new friends,
and enjoying cookies, cocoa and
candy canes.
Grandparent and Special Guest Day
A record number of guests enjoyed the school’s annual Grandparent and Special
Guest Day on Nov. 24! This year’s performance titled: Sing, Children of the
World, highlighted songs from many cultures of the world. Students speaking in
native languages from the North, South, East, and West began the program with
prayer from their homelands, followed by a lively rendition of the Our Father
from the Caribbean.
In light of the recent tragedies in Paris, the audience was asked to pause for a
moment of prayerful silence before the 2nd grade tribute to those of French
heritage. During the finale highlighting the United States of America, the audience
was invited to share their patriotism by joining the children in singing, It’s A
Grand Old Flag.
Under the creative direction of Mrs. Mozelle Cole, Music and Program Director,
the children took the audience on a world-wide tour of many cultures and
traditions. The overall impression of the program left everyone with the thought
that the future of our world really does rest in the goodness and grace of the
world’s children. As we enjoy the Advent season, our hearts are still warm from
this wonderful presentation. May Christ’s message of peace, hope, joy and love be
felt throughout our troubled world.

FOURTH SUNDAY OF ADVENT
Fr. Jose’s column
THE PROCESS OF ‘JESUSIZATION’
London’s Heathrow airport has a prayer room meant for passengers of all Faiths. Two
years ago, returning to Atlanta via London, I had a couple hours at the airport.
Wanting to spend a few minutes in silence in the prayer room, I reached at its door.
Even after ten minutes’ waiting, I couldn’t get in. The sanctuary remained packed with
people entering and exiting with prayer mats in hands. After a while I understood all
those who were using that sacred place were our Muslim brothers!
Recently I happened to browse through certain news items and one caught my special
attention. It was about a prophecy a deceased mystic made some two decades ago
before her death: A Muslim Caliphate would be established in Europe by 2043 with
Rome as its epi-center!
For the past some time in Europe, good number of churches are empty of worshipers
except a handful of elderly people. Very many churches in Europe are either closed,
sold or converted for business purposes. My recent pilgrimage to Europe also affirms
this fact— monumental churches that are empty of worshipers but with lots of tourists. The depth of the once deeply rooted Catholic Christian faith in that part of the
world is increasingly becoming alien. Signs of the impending Muslim Caliphate…..?
In the southern states of our country, the so-called Bible belt, it gives me joy to see
that our churches are pretty much packed with worshipers on any given Sunday.
Even in the midst of rampant secularism, the faith life here seems to be better than the
rest of the country.
However, there exist the dangers of ‘Cafeteria Catholicism’ and ‘skin-deep-faith’
Catholicism. Both are dangerous attitudes in our faith life. While Cafeteria
Catholicism turns us into ‘choose and pick’ ‘Catholics,’ ‘skin-deep-faith’ Catholicism
can easily take us to other religions. On December 5 in an interview given to National
Catholic Register ,Cardinal Donald Wuerl of Washington said: “Following the sometimes-bad catechesis of the ’70s and ’80s, today, most pastors recognize that we are
dealing with a generation of people who have a diminished understanding of the faith
and therefore appreciation for it. Combine this with secular attitudes which present
marriage as temporary and couples might easily begin to think their marriage has
failed.”
At our parish I am so thrilled to see the variety of ministries that cater to the needs of
different age groups. It is my prayer and wish for all of you that you get involved with
at least one of the myriads of ministries that we have in our parish. Make sure your
choice of ministry helps you to advance in your faith life.
The worldwide growth of the so-called faith-based radicalism of a certain religion
could be checked or contained effectively not by means of weapons but by way of
living our Catholic faith in a challenging way. For this to happen we need to be
people of prayer: prayer that would transform us into alter Christus. And only Jesus
can bring lasting peace, harmony and happiness in our life. For He is the Prince of
Peace, Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God and Everlasting Father (Isaiah 9:6).
If we aren’t serious about the prevailing culture of ‘Cafeteria Catholicism’ and ‘skindeep-faith Catholicism’, it is certain that in the near future we too will be losing our
millennia-old faith traditions. More than being a celebratory or festive moment, let
this holy season of Advent be for us a time to deepen and strengthen our faith life by
increasingly becoming Jesus through the process of Jesusization. Let the birth pang be
real for us as we bring Jesus into today’s world in our Christmas celebration.
Merry and Blessed Christmas! Fr. Jose.

La Corona de Adviento, una de nuestras tradiciones
de Adviento más importantes, hecha de ramas verdes
que no tienen comienzo ni final. La forma circular de
la Corona de Adviento se usa para simbolizar a Dios
Padre
y la vida eterna. La corona tiene cuatro velas que se encienden durante las cuatro
semanas de Adviento. Tradicionalmente, cada vela en la corona tiene su propio
significado. Esta semana encendemos la cuarta vela morada que simboliza la Paz,
y nos recuerda el mensaje de los ángeles: “Y en la tierra, paz a los hombres de
buena voluntad.”

WELCOME FROM THE PASTOR AND
CATHEDRAL STAFF
Dear Friends in Christ,
On behalf of Archbishop Wilton Gregory, the Clergy and
staff, I welcome you to the Cathedral of Christ the King. I
hope and pray that you feel welcomed by our parish
community and that your spiritual and pastoral needs will
be met.
We are a very active parish with 5,500 families and over one
hundred ministries. We encourage our members to share
their gifts of time, talent and treasure.
Our mission statement is to “Know, Love and Serve as Jesus
Did”. This is the mission of each disciple of Christ and, if
you are new, I hope and pray that you will join us and be
part of the community of Christ the King. If you are passing
through or visiting the city of Atlanta, I hope you enjoy your
worship experience and please visit us again.
If you would like to know more about our parish, you can
visit our website at www.cathedralofchristtheking.org or
email us.
May we, this day and all the days of our lives, know, love
and serve as Jesus did.
Prayers and Blessings,
Msgr. Frank McNamee, Rector
