Message from Fr. Joe
During Advent we look back and we look forward. We remember the future! We look back reflecting on the promises of salvation history that were fulfilled in the Incarnation-birth. We look forward to the promised Day of the Lord and the fulfillment of all things.
Usually at this time of year people are at their busiest, running around preparing for and already celebrating with Christmas festivities. This year a simple place of Advent quiet, of retreat and of prayer may be more possible than ever.
Let Us Sing the Praises of Mary and let us present our needs and those of our nation to the Lord Jesus, Christ our Emmanuel-God with us.
Truly, amidst this fragile and challenging time of 2020, this Advent affords us an opportunity to reflect on the true meaning of the season.
