Today we being the new liturgical year with the First Sunday of Advent. We move into Sunday readings of cycle C and on weekdays it is year 2. Even though the readings still talk about the end of time, we are preparing for the dawn of Salvation. We have these four short weeks to Advent to mentally and spiritually prepare ourselves for the birthday of the Child-Jesus. How loved we are to have the Son of God be born into our world so that we have the possibility of Salvation with him in heaven. In a secular world that wants to ignore the birth of Jesus, we have to make sure that we show the world around us that if the Child Jesus was not born, there would be nothing to celebrate.

With Advent there are a number of Penance Services in the local parishes. Please take advantage of one of them.

The Mass schedules for the Holy Day and Christmas and New Years are printed in the bulletin so you can make plans accordingly.

As we enter into a new liturgical year and a holy season, let us take extra time to pray and reflect on the mystery of God’s love for us that He willingly sent his son to us. As our Christmas gift to God, let us give ourselves to His divine Son.
