Advent is upon us soon. The Last Sunday of the Year is 26 November. That is “Stir Up Sunday“.
The “stir up” comes from the first words of the traditional Collect at Mass of the Last Sunday of the Year.
Excita, [Stir up!] quaesumus. Dómine, tuórum fidélium voluntátes: ut, divíni óperis fructum propénsius exsequéntes; pietátis tuæ remédia maióra percípiant.
Many stir up the ingredients for their Christmas puddings on Stir Up Sunday, and steam it, so that it has adequate time to set before the big day.
What are YOUR pudding plan?
Find a recipe, make a plan with the family, and make a Christmas pudding this year!
You can help me with the ingredients and win my gratitude as well as remembrance among the benefactors I pray for at Mass.
Think about getting your Christmas shopping done early.
Thanks in advance!
