THERE IS STILL TIME TO ORDER OUR UNIQUE HOLIDAY GIFT ITEMS!
In the dignity of their simplicity and timelessness of their message the greeting cards, calendars and recordings produced by the St. Gregory Society make a strong statement about our Catholic Faith and the role of traditional beliefs and practices in our lives. Surely there are among your family and friends those who will observe Christmas this season with added devotion because you reminded them of the Gift that is Eternal.
CHRISTMAS CARD FOR 2013
Bearing an image of the Journey of the Magi from an antique missal, these cards are unique in their inclusion of a Latin text from the liturgy proper to the feast (with English translation on overleaf). Printed in black on fine cream-colored stock with accent of border in crimson; matching envelopes. These cards are reserved in appearance – a welcome contrast to the commercialism that secularizes so many modern-day observances of this great feast.
Translation of Latin text for the 2013 Christmas cards: “When the Wise Men saw the star, they said one to another: This is the sign of the great King: let us go and search for Him, and offer Him gifts, gold, frankincense and myhrrh, alleluia.” [Antiphon at the Magnificat: First Vestpers of the Epiphany of Our Lord.]
