Second Sunday of Advent

This Weeks Readings: Baruch 5.1-9; Psalm 126; Phillippians 1.3-6,8-11; Luke 3.1-6.

PREPARE THE WAY OF THE LORD, MAKE HIS PATHS STRAIGHT

This week and next, our Gospel readings invite us to consider John the Baptist and his relationship to Jesus. John the Baptist appears in the tradition of the great prophets, preaching repentance and reform to the people of Israel… John's preaching of the coming of the Lord is a key theme of the Advent season. As John's message prepared the way for Jesus, we too are called to prepare ourselves for Jesus' coming. We respond to John's message by repentance and reform of our lives. We are also called to be prophets of Christ, who announce by our lives the coming of the Lord, as John did.

A Message from Our Pastor, Fr. Dominic...

An Advent Message from Our Pastor…

It’s Advent and I am feeling pregnant. Being a man, I have never carried or given birth to a baby but there is a sense inside of me of carrying something to term and it needs to come out!  This experience makes me think that I am in a kind of solidarity with our Blessed Mother and the task she was given: to conceive of God’s Word, His Son, to carry Him in her, to give everything of herself over to Him that is needed for his human growth, to give birth to him into the world. I do not pretend to be on par or even up to the same awesome task that Mary was given and which she carried out with a fidelity and a love unparalleled in all of humanity.  read more »
