Pastor's Thoughts

For December 16, 2018

We celebrate the Third Sunday of Advent. We are half way through this Holy Season. Actually, we are more than half way through since Christmas comes only two days after the Fourth Sunday of Advent. The Church marks this halfway point by using rose-colored vestments. Of course, we do not have rose-colored vestments. However, we do use violet or pink colored decorations and banners to reflect the theme of the season. The Third Sunday of Advent reminds us that we are almost there. We need to prepare our hearts for the coming of the Lord. Of course, the Lord is always present in our lives. The Church provides us opportunities to step out of our routines and prepare a little more intensely for the presence of Jesus. May these last nine days of Advent be a time for reflection and prayer, as we get ready for Christmas.
