"The liberating power of this sacrament in which our honest confession of sin is met by God's merciful word of pardon and peace, needs to be rediscovered and re-appropriated by every Catholic." Pope Benedict XVI
Has it been a while? You’re invited
Do you need healing? You’re invited
Do you need peace? You’re invited
Do you need prayer? You’re invited
You are invited to join us this
Wednesday for our Advent Reconciliation Service including Eucharistic Adoration, Praise and Worship and prayer ministry beginning at 7 PM
(6:30 PM Mass is canceled).
If you are consecrating on Friday, it is recommended to make a good confession before or soon after your consecration, so this is a great opportunity to make your consecration to the Sacred Heart of Jesus through the Immaculate Heart of Mary even more meaningful.
A Message from Bishop Barron on the First Sunday of Advent (Luke 21:25-28, 34-36)..........
Friends, in today’s Gospel Jesus tells his disciples to be vigilant. Today marks the beginning of Advent, the great liturgical season of vigilance, of waiting and watching.
What practically can we do during this season of vigil keeping? What are some practices that might incarnate for us the Advent spirituality?
I strongly recommend the classically Catholic discipline of Eucharistic adoration. To spend a half hour or an hour in the presence of the Lord is not to accomplish or achieve very much—it is not really "getting" anywhere—but it is a particularly rich form of spiritual waiting.
As you keep vigil before the Blessed Sacrament, bring to Christ some problem or dilemma that you have been fretting over, and then say: "Lord, I’m waiting for you to solve this, to show me the way out, the way forward. I’ve been running, planning, worrying, but now I’m going to let you work." Then, throughout Advent, watch attentively for signs.
