Our Pastor made an interesting observation today in his homily.

The old “Christmas Proclamation” that is part of the morning liturgy of the hours states in Latin, “A nativitate Abrahae, anno bis millesimo quintodecimo.”

Translation: From the birth of Abraham, the year two thousand and fifteen

We are now as far removed, time wise, for Jesus as Abraham was.

He went on to say that it’s probably off by a couple of years.
