Lessons and Carols at SJS


This past weekend, the Saint John's Seminary Schola, the Vietnamese Choir and a collection of talented  musicians celebrated Christmas Lessons and Carols under the magnificent direction of Dr. Janet Hunt.  The chapel was packed on Saturday evening and Sunday afternoon as the angelic song reminded us of the words of Pope Benedict XVI in the latest volume of Jesus of Nazareth:


“Christianity has always understood that the speech of angels is actually song, in which all the glory of the great joy that they proclaim becomes tangibly present. And so, from that moment, the Angels song of praise has never gone silent. It continues down the centuries in constantly new forms and it resounds ever new at the celebration of Jesus’s birth. It is only natural that simple believers would then hear the shepherds singing too, and to this day they join in their caroling on the holy night, proclaiming in song the great joy that from then until the end of time, is the bestowed on all people.”
