"The knowledge of God "is buried from the eyes of everyone whose intellect has not matured within the flame of God."
"Seek His Face always" Ps 105:4 "Quaerite faciem eius semper"
the Season of Epiphany
January 6 - february 25, 2017
The appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ
Arise, shine, for your light has come,
and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you.
For behold, darkness shall cover the earth, and thick darkness the peoples; but the Lord will arise upon you, and his glory will be seen upon you.
And nations shall come to your light,
and kings to the brightness of your rising.
Lift up your eyes all around, and see; they all gather together, they come to you; your sons shall come from afar, and your daughters shall be carried on the hip.
Then you shall see and be radiant; your heart shall thrill and exult, because the abundance of the sea shall be turned to you, the wealth of the nations shall come to you. Isaiah 60:1-5
Stars cross the sky,
wise men journey from pagan lands,
earth receives its savior in a cave.
Let there be no one without gift to offer,
no one without gratitude as we celebrate the salvation of the world, the birthday of the human race.
Now it is no longer, “dust you are and to dust you shall return”, but,
“You are joined to heaven and into heaven you will be taken up.”
Basil the Great (AD 330-379)
beautiful eucharist liturgies through epiphany
Angela Martin, our Hospitality Director, writes beautiful reflective liturgies each week that honor Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We are making these resources available for those of you who would enjoy spending a rich evening of reflection and worship with a small group or family and friends. Please click the titles below to download these.
Each Sunday evening we meet as a community around Eucharist at Urban Abbey at 7pm
- you are invited to join us!
The best and most important way to become connected with the life of the Abbey is to become involved in an Abbey Cell.
A Cell is a safe place to encounter the transforming presence of Jesus, develop durable friendships and be helped to reconstruct our lives in alignment with the Jesus way of being.
