My Dear People,
Bring A Clean Heart To The Manager
"A voice cries out in the wilderness...prepare the way of the Lord." Matthew's Gospel calls us to a spirit of repentance. St. John the Baptist called all to a simple and holy life hungry for the Messiah. Jesus announces that the Kingdom of God is at hand. Humility and obedience always open the door to Our Lord Jesus Christ. What better way to get ready for Christmas than to bring a clean heart to the manger.
Remember, the Church still requires confession at least once a year, especially if you receive the Holy Eucharist often. Makes plans to come to confession this Advent on Saturday, or to your Parish Penance Service. Jesus is calling YOU to receive His Divine Mercy in the confessional this Advent.
Entrusting you to the care of Our Lady,
Fr. Mark, Your Sunday Catholic Homily; The Second Sunday of Advent
