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] 2699 Peachtree Road, NE Atlanta, Georgia 30305 404-233-2145 www.cathedralofchristtheking.org 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.

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.” FOURTH SUNDAY OF ADVENT Around the Parish continued ‘The Hills Are Alive . . .’ With the sound of music sung by Christ the King’s Cathedral Choir!

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!

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.

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.
