My favorite part of Christmas

One of the best moments of they year to me is announcing the Holy Gospel on Christmas. “The Beginning of the Holy Gospel according to Saint John.” Of course, this rubric is no longer in the hymnal. It is the ancient rubric to announce the Gospel reading with, “The Continuation of the Holy Gospel…” But on Christmas, it is changed to “The beginning…”
Few things are as cool to me as that moment. Here are some of them :
Announcing “The conclusion of the Holy Gospel according to Saint Mark” on Ascension day.
Saying the Athanasian Creed on Holy Trinity.
Re-introducing the Gloria in Excelsis on Christmas and Easter days.
Seeing my wife every day.
Now you know what gives me a rush.
