Catholic Hanukkah

catholic-hanukkah

Being a Catholic Priest and Jewish and a Missionary of Mercy of Pope Francis is really cool. This was Christmas Eve 2016 last night at the rectory just before Midnight Mass. There’s Mary. There’s baby Jesus in Saint Anthony’s arms. There’s the Menorah with the servant candle and day 1 lit up (Yes, I said the prayers, chanted them in Hebrew, actually, including the special prayer for day 1). There’s the Papal flag. There’s the American flag. There’s a flower for the Immaculate Conception. If anyone is scandalized and angry, see this from the Zed: ASK FATHER: Can Catholics observe Hannukah / Chanukah?
