Great news! We are expecting a baby due December 25!
The Church gives us the Advent season (starting Nov 28) to prepare a room/our hearts for His arrival. Blessed John Henry Cardinal Newman in a reflection called Advent and Self-Denial states, “Now let every one consider what his weak point is; in that is his trial. His trial is not in those things which are easy to him, but in that one thing, in those several things, whatever they are, in which to do his duty is against his nature.” Where do you struggle with your nature? Where do you need to clean up your heart to prepare a place for Him? What will you do or NOT do during this season of Advent to prepare for the arrival of this holy Child?
The church has placed Advent booklets at the doors of church for you to pick up and take home. The prayer cards in the pews are there for your use during visits. We have added the recitation of the Rosary on Saturdays at 4:30 P.M. and Sundays at 10:30 A.M.
