  • Notes from your Pastor

     

      

    We welcome everyone to begin the Holy Season of Advent.  Advent means to “Come to”.  We focus upon God’s First Coming to us at Christmas.  We focus upon the Second Coming of Christ at the end of the world.  Sandwiched between these two comings is the present.  We can add to this the coming of God in the present moment.  Three times in the Gospel we are called to watch.  What are we to watch for during the Season of Advent?  Possibly we can say we are called to watch for moments, for opportunities to prepare to meet Our Lord.

     

    During the First Week of Advent we highlight the word, Joy.  After the Letter “J” print esus.  After the letter “O” print thers; and after the letter “Y”, print ou.  What is joy?  Real Christian Joy is having a right relationship with Jesus and others.  We are always called to grow in these relationships.  We are called to examine our lives and our relationships in terms of the Coming of Our Lord.

     

    The center of the Christmas celebration is experiencing Christ as Savior.  He wishes to be reborn in each of us.  With Pope Francis, all of us can acknowledge that we are sinners in need of a Savior.  Open the doors of your heart to Our Savior.  Experiencing the Gift of the Savior is the Greatest of the Christmas Gifts.  Come to confession.  Let the Christmas story be rewritten again in you, in your circumstances, in your relationships.

     

    We are called to watch for the opportunities that God gives us to draw closer together with God and to one another.  The Good News is that God is the Loving Father who joyfully embraces us like the loving father in the parable of the Prodigal Son.  That encounter results in a joyful reunion.  You and I can also experience the joy of that reunion and invite others to experience it as well.
