Click here to download and listen to this homily (11 minutes) given by Fr Thomas Weise at St Catherine of Siena parish in Petersburg, Alaska. Tonight we gather together to unwrap the gift of Jesus coming to us as a little child. He is born in the City of David: Bethlehem, meaning House of Bread. He is laid in a manger, showing that he wants to be our food. He is present here tonight, in fact every day, in the Eucharist. Let us work to unwrap this gift.
Readings: Isaiah 62:1-5; Psalm 89; Acts 13:16-17, 22-25; Luke 2:1-14
