It was back in 1977 when I first saw it. I am excited again and ready to return to a place far away and back in time: “The Force Awakens” -- episode 7 of Star Wars. Through the medium of storytelling and movie making we are caught up in an adventure far away in a remote past that seems to be part of our future and also near and present. 

Advent means “coming.” It is three dimensional. The coming of Jesus as a baby in Bethlehem long ago; the coming of Jesus as the Son of Man at  the end time; and the coming of Jesus today in liturgy, scripture and sacrament. In heightened anticipation we welcome Jesus as our Lord and Savior. The Jubilee Year of Mercy begins on December 8 the feast the Immaculate Conception. It is an occasion to become more conscious of God’s mercy and to discover how mercy is a way of life that inaugurates the coming of Jesus. 

The Light Is On in the Church of the Annunciation on Advent Wednesday evenings, 5:30 PM - 6:30 PM, December 2, 9, 16 & 23. You are invited to come for Confession/ Sacrament of Penance. The Reconciliation Room is next to the tabernacle.  Together we can receive and share the forgiveness of Jesus and 

celebrate God’s mercy.
