Advent Pageant Up

The parish’s liturgy Facebook page now has our Advent Pageant up.

Saints Point to Christ featured an apocryphal retelling of the first Christmas creche, in which Francis of Assisi dreams of both Biblical events and the witness of Saints Lucy and Nicholas, and so is inspired to gift the wealthy Christians of Grecio with a live Nativity scene. We scaled back the gruesome details of Lucy; the best denunciation her suitor can muster is “She is a crazy Christian!” when he learns she’s given her dowry to the poor.

Here’s the adapted text of Santa Lucia: taken from the Swedish and adapted to fit the Neapolitan melody.
