20 + C + M + B + 09

Here is this year’s Epiphany Proclamation, so you can mark your ’09 calendars.


Dear brothers and sisters, the glory of the Lord has shone upon us,
and shall ever be manifest among us, until the day of his return.

Through the rhythms of times and seasons let us celebrate the mysteries of salvation.

Let us recall the year’s culmination, the Easter Triduum of the Lord:
his last supper, his crucifixion, his burial and his rising, celebrated between the evening of the 9th of April and the evening of the 12th of April.

Each Easter—as on each Sunday—the Holy Church makes present the great and saving deed by which Christ has forever conquered sin and death.

From Easter are reckoned all the days we keep holy.

Ash Wednesday, the beginning of Lent, will occur on the 25th of February.

The Ascension of the Lord will be commemorated on the 24th of May.

Pentecost, the joyful conclusion of the season of Easter, will be celebrated on the 31st of May.

And this year the First Sunday of Advent will be on the 29th of November.

Likewise the pilgrim Church proclaims the Passover of Christ in the feasts of the holy Mother of God, in the feasts of the Apostles and Saints, and in the commemoration of the faithful departed.

To Jesus Christ, who was, who is, and who is to come, Lord of time and history, be endless praise, for ever and ever. Amen.

  1. Dear Father White,
    We heard about your brother this morning at Mass. We are sorry to hear that he is not doing well. You and your family, esp. your brother will be in our prayers. May the Lord and the Blessed Mother with all the angels be with you at this difficult time.

  2. I’m the mother of your priest and his sick brother, and I’m very grateful for your prayers.

  3. I’m sorry, I understand what the CMB and 09 (the year) means, but what does the 20 stand for? Oh, I’m just guessing now, but it’s the 20 from 2009?

  4. Dear Father White and family,

    I am sorry that your brother, Benjamin, is sick. I will pray for your brother. (Thomas)

    I am also sorry that your brother is sick. I will say my prayer to St. Michael for him. (Alex)

    Take care,
    Thomas and Alex

  5. I’m sorry but isn’t this a form of witchcraft?
    I mean unless it specifically says this spell in the bible should we be making up our own?

    Deuteronomy 18:9-14 When thou art come into the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of those nations.
    There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch,
    Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.
    For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee.
    Thou shalt be perfect with the LORD thy God.
    For these nations, which thou shalt possess, hearkened unto observers of times, and unto diviners: but as for thee, the LORD thy God hath not suffered thee so to do.
