The old Church Year is nearly over and the new Church Year to be born on Sunday, Nov. 29, the closest Sunday to the Feast of St. Andrew (Nov. 30). At the AIC we are marking the new season with a few new development.
Over this weekend, I will move all AIC Videos from the current host site to Vimeo.com. The previous vendor has announced a change in the terms of our contract, giving them the right to “monetize” anything we place on their site. This means, potentially, ads inserted at the start of, in the content of and at the end of videos. I will not allow them to commercialize our education materials. Effective today, I am removing all our content from their site. This may mean that some videos are temporarily unavailable during this transition.
Second, as part of the change nonted above, I will be modifying all existing videos into a new format. The old versions will remain available, to be replaced as each revised version is completed during the Winter A.D. 2020-2021
Third, it appears possible that the Luke volume can be produced sooner than expected. The final version is undergoing design and final proofing. With His grace, we may be able to have the Gospel of Luke: Annotated & Illustrated ready before Christmas Day.
Fourth, the Podcast Homilies for all four Sundays in Advent will be linked from the Home page. Also, beginning around, Dec. 15th. the Podcasts and videos for The Great “O” Antiphons series for the final seven days before Christmas, will be linked from the Home Page.
Finally, in the days just before Christmas, I will link the videos and podcasts for Lessons and Carols from Christmas Eve from the Home page. All the above may prove timely given the restrictiosn related to COVID-19.
As always, thank you for your interest, support and prayers.
Glory be to God for all things! Amen!
