Welcome to our Parish website!
The Season of Advent has begun. In these four weeks we look back to the preparations for Christ’s coming and look ahead to His coming at the end of time. We begin reading the Gospel of Matthew, our Evangelist for the balance of 2019 and 2020. The Prophet Isaiah is our companion in these weeks as he calls our church to a new vision of the presence of God in us and around us. With Isaiah we pray ”Come, let us walk in the light of the Lord…”
The Advent homily of St. Bernard of Clairvaux (12th century) is insightful even today. He speaks of the three “advents” or comings of the Lord: the first coming of Jesus at Christmas, his Second Coming at the end of time, and Christ’s third coming, His daily arrivals in our busy and complicated lives!
The weeks of Advent are brief and often too full of Christmas preparations. We can all take a few minutes to pray each day in the Season’s prayer “Come Lord Jesus, come”, full our lives, our church and our world with your indwelling presence!
Forward in Faith,
Fr. Tom Sievel
