Season of Advent

Advent is a period of preparation, extending over four Sundays, before Christmas. For Catholics, advent has two parts. The first part of advent, which extends from the 1-17 Dec. draws our attention to the second coming of Christ at the end of time. Then the second part, 17th-onwards, is to prepare for the first coming of Christ - His birth in a stable at Bethlehem.

Sunday Mass: Created Equal?

November 16th
Those often quoted words, "all men are created equal," are both true and false. All men and women are creations of God endowed by God with certain rights that cannot be taken away, no one person has greater rights than another. Yet all people are not equally blessed with abilities and skills, the Lord expects us to use whatever talents he has given us to further the growth of his Kingdom on earth. 

Sunday Mass: Remembering the Forecast

November 10th
The Church has been forecasting the glorious Second Coming of the Lord. It continues to make that forecast several times during the celebration of every Sunday Mass. This Sunday's readings address why that forecast has not yet come about and why that forecast should still be taken to heart.

Sunday Mass: Judging Our Leaders

November 03rd
Sunday's readings focus on religious leaders. Such leaders, like all those in positions of authority, are always being judged. Whether we voice our judgments or keep them to ourselves, all of us judge our bishops, pastors, priests, and deacons. Our judgments need to be tempered with mercy and compassion.
