  2. Hope you had a blessed Feast of the Nativity of the Most Holy Mother of God! :)

    “She is the cause of what came before her, the champion of what came after her and the agent of things eternal. She is the substance of the prophets, the principle of the apostles, the firm foundation of the martyrs and the premise of the teachers of the Church. She is the glory of those upon earth, the joy of celestial beings, the adornment of all creation. She is the beginning and the source and root of unutterable good things; she is the summit and consummation of everything holy.” ~ St. Gregory Palamas

    1. I love this quotation- the Church fathers are amazing!

    2. Gotta love the Church fathers!

      Thanks for the link to the BCCC! I was so happy to read that their closure, which had been announced over the summer, has been "suspended pending further consultation."
