A TIME OF HOPE…..A YEAR OF GRACE
Advent invites me, you, everybody to acknowledge this:
Dear God, the world is a mess, and my own life is less than whole. Something—NO—SOMEONE—is missing. We—I—really need YOU! If you are willing to admit your life is not whole, that you need a rescuer, a helper, someone to intervene, and want a Savior:
PRAYER: These days of preparation during Advent are a great time to regularly spend some quiet time with God.
BIBLE: Read St. Luke’s Gospel 5 minutes each Advent Day.
MASS: Participate in Sunday Mass and receive the Risen Christ in Holy Communion.
CONFESSION: Try to receive God’s loving forgiveness — available every Saturday beginning at 3:30 p.m. and after Mass as announced on some Advent Sundays. THE SACRAMENT OF GOD’S MERCY AND
FORGIVENESS WITH 3 PRIESTS AVAILABLE ON TUESDAY,
DECEMBER 14th, FROM 5:00 to 7:00 p.m.
