Society of St. John Chrysostom to meet in California

St. Margaret's in Oceanside, CA, is in the news again. Josephus Flavius of the Byzantine, Texas blog points us to an article informing us that St. Margaret's is hosting a regional chapter meeting of the Society of St. John Chrysostom, which will include a presentation focusing on what remaining obstacles to reunification of Catholic and Orthodox churches. The presentation will be led by the Rev. Ramon Merlos, from Our Lady of Kazan Patriarchal Orthodox Church in San Diego, and the Rev. John Monastero, a Catholic priest from Anaheim. That's so cool ;)

The Society of St. John Chrysostom is a group dedicated to Catholic-Orthodox ecumenism and ongoing interaction. It is made up of Catholic and Orthodox Christians. Any Catholic or Orthodox Christian who is a member in good standing with a church in communion with either Rome or an Orthodox community is eligible for membership.

The Nativity

Merry Christmas!

I hope that all of you have been enjoying the holidays with your family and friends. Remember the importance of Christmas. God, the Creator of the Universe, born as a babe in a manger. Amazing.

As for me, I've been fighting off another cold this year that I came down with sometime after Christmas day. And in spite of all the pain and suffering in the world (pounding table), I'm still brimming with Christmas joy! Pax vobiscum.
