Note: For Midnight Mass 2011, click here:
One thing I love about the Catholic Church is its universal celebration through the Liturgy. All of us will – no matter where we celebrate – be united in the prayers of the Eucharist and the Sacred Scripture. Technology makes it possible to transport us to Saint Peter’s to celebrate the Feast of the Nativity of our Lord with the Holy Father, Pope Benedict XVI.
For those wishing to participate with the Christmas celebrations in Rome:
“Midnight Mass” will begin at 10pm Rome time (4pmET/1pmPT):
EWTN will be broadcasting on TV, and live-streaming it here.
Vatican will also be live-streaming.
CatholicTV will have a delayed viewing at 11pmET (Dec 24).
The Vatican youtube channel will also have delayed viewing at your leisure.
The Pope’s annual “Urbi et Orbi” message to the world will be given from Saint Peter’s Square on Sunday at 12pm Rome time (6.00 am ET / 3.00 am PT), and will be live-streamed at Vatican News Services, CatholicTv, and by Vatican Radio.
Let us remain united in prayer, in thanksgiving for the Greatest Gift – God himself.
Blessed and Holy Christmas!
