First Sunday of AdventFr. John Gerth
Lord, rend the heavens and come down. Come and save us from our sins. Let us turn again to you and so to be found blameless when you return in glory.

Happy New Year!

No, this is not a misprint. For us, as Catholics this weekend we celebrate the beginning of a new Liturgical year as we enter into this season of Advent. Given how far too often these days we are pushed to move forget about Advent and skip right to the buying of presents, drinking hot chocolate and the putting on of Christmas music that these next few weeks have become. Maybe it’s a good time for us to reflect for a few moments on what this season really is.
