Hello, John and Doves,
A high watch day is the last and greatest day [imho] of Hanukkah, 2 Tevet, which begins the evening of Tuesday, 23 December 2014.
The miracle of olive oil that lasted eight days is a picture of the Church not having lost faith.
It is written,
“However, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on the earth?"
Answer: Absolument! [Fr: Absolutely!]
Thus is it written,
That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.
