TENEBRÆ: THE OFFICE OF MATINS AND LAUDS OF MAUNDY THURSDAY

Hebdomadary: Rev. Fr. Eugene Sta.Ana.

Out of unfathomable love, the eternal Word of God was made flesh to share with us everything pertaining to our human condition, with the exception of sin. For sin makes us less then human. But He, Our Lord, God and Savior Jesus Christ, did not shun the bitter consequences of sin: sorrow, pain, death. He rather embraced them all so that we, even in the deepest pit of despair and degradation, be never left alone,  may always have a chance to turn to Him, who walked the Way of Grief before us, and be saved. For by sharing in his sorrowful Passion, we also share in His glorious Resurrection. This Holy Week come and meditate on the Passion of Christ with us.

 Vespers of  the 4th Sunday of Lent
(Lætare Sunday)
Hebdomadary: Rev. Fr. Eugene Sta.Ana




4080 Hawk St, San Diego, CA 92103

Please join us at St. Vincent de Paul for Vespers of Lætare Sunday. The name is taken from the first word of the Introit, Lætare, which means "rejoice". The Apostle Paul, by quoting the prophet Isaiah,  invites us to rejoice with Jerusalem, to signify the joy of our approaching paschal redemption through the sacrifice on the cross of Our Lord, God, and Savior, Jesus Christ. Hear and feel all this through Gregorian chant.

IT'S A BOY!!!

IT'S A BOY!!! Tonight, 25 March, 2014, at our regular Monday night rehearsal the Brothers had cause to celebrate the arrival of Gregory Matthew Covalt, the first child born to longtime Chorus Breviarii member and postulant to the Brothers, James Covalt and his lovely wive Vi. Congratulations to all the members of the Covalt family, and we wish them many, many years. Even in the desert of Lent we are in the midst of Life!

Come to St. Charles in Imperial Beach and celebrate with us this great saint, who had the privilege of defending the Holy Family from the attacks of the enemy.  A great feast like this has two Vespers services, the first on the evening of the preceding day, and the second on the evening of the day itself. We will sing the second Vespers on the feast day of St. Joseph, the spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary and foster-father of Our Lord.
