What does Christmas mean for humanity?
It starts with a sickness, it ends in a remedy, and then it falls on us to make a decision. The sickness is sin. The remedy is God-become-man, born to die for us. Now, it’s up to us to decide to receive that true Christmas gift.
Today, Fr. Mark-Mary does us the service of reminding us what Christmas is all about.
Meet Fr. Mark-Mary
Father Mark-Mary was ordained as a Franciscan Friar of the Renewal (CFR) in 2018 and lives at a friary in the Bronx.
The mission of the CFRs is to wholeheartedly embrace Jesus through fidelity to the Church and her Sacraments. Paired with their commitment to prayer, contemplation, and study of Sacred Scripture, the CFRs serve those around them, especially the poor, in the footsteps of Christ.
Discover beautiful music from the CFRs and Fr. Mark-Mary’s book Habits for Holiness: Small Steps for Spiritual Progress, both available from Ascension.
