As we begin the Sacred Season of Advent and light the first candle on our Advent wreath, perhaps we might take some time to reflect and begin our spiritual preparation for Christmas. May this sacred season bring you Hope.

~ Father Jerry

We are all waiting! Advent asks us to wait and to take our time to prepare for Christmas over the next four weeks. In the words of Jesus from todays Gospel we are to stay awake! Advent offers us two messages. It is a time to prepare for Christmas when Christs birth is remembered and celebrated. It is also offered to us as a time that directs our hearts and minds to prepare for and await Christs coming at the fullness of time. Advent therefore is a time of preparation. We are called to watch and wait in joyful hope for the coming our Savior, Jesus Christ.

Over the next few weeks the shops and the advertise- ments on television will continue to attract our attention and offer us their message. They will tell us to stay busy, spend more, and do all we can to get ready to celebrate Christmas in style.

However, there is another message that Advent offers us. It is one that asks us to stay awake so that we dont miss the sights and sounds of this sacred season. As well as the lights and decorations, we will see the Advent wreath in our churches with its candles over the next few weeks. The crib will draw our attention to the birth of Jesus. Advent reminds us that we are getting ready to welcome someone, not something!

Through the Gospels, over the coming weeks, we will meet and hear John the Baptist as he says to each of
Prepare a way for the Lord, make his path straight.’ On the last Sunday of Advent the Gospel will tell us about Mary who said yes’ in a radical act of faith in response to Gods plan for her.

Advent also encourages us to slow down, pray, stay awake and prepare our daily lives, our hearts and our homes to welcome Jesus through the Nativity.

Advent is the season of joyful hope; so we pray that with Gods help we will do all we can to support each other, to remain faithful, optimistic, joyful and hopeful.
