According to the Extraordinary Form of the calendar the Feast on January 1st is the Circumcision of The Child Jesus which is what we will celebrate tonight. In the morning we will celebrate the Solemnity of the Mother of God according to the new rite. Tonight Father explains that the circumsision that Our Lord went through was to show us the importance of redemptive suffering even in this Season of Joy.
