The First Week of Advent-Sunday, December 3, 2017

Happy Sunday-

Have you invited Jesus Christ into your home? Your heart? We have entered the season of waiting on the Lord.  What do expectant parents do to prepare for the birth of a child?  Is there a space for Christ to sit at your table?  Is there a place for Christ to rest in your arms? Is there a song you may sing to him?  Is there an Advent wreath in your home to light one candle to know his light is already here and he will come again?

Which words are you whispering to him ?  Men, have you seen the spiritual womanhood of the women you encounter?  Women, have you seen the spiritual Fatherhood of the men you encounter?  Every Christian carries the light of Christ from Baptism.  Do others see your light to brighten their darkness?  

Let us pray for an increase of vocations to the priesthood so that the mercy of God's kingdom and the light of his glory will be a balm to the wounded world.

Let us pray for an increase in marriage to multiple the fruitfulness of the nuptial bond.

 

Let is pray for an increase in religious life so that prophetic witness prompts conversions.

Let us pray for an increase of deacons to lead with the servant's hands, feet and heart.

Let us pray that all follow Christ toward our true home in Heaven.

Peace!
