Music Monday - Handel

Handel's "Every Valley Shall Be Exalted" from The Messiah is perfect for the second week of Advent when the readings for Sunday were all about St. John the Baptist announcing the coming of Christ.

We need to, with God's help, try to make our "rough places plain" in preparation for the birth of Our Lord.

Jesus, Son of the Living God, have mercy on us!

Dymphna's favorite quotes

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
