A Light To the Lost

November 30, 2008

My Dear People,

Be Christ's Light This Advent

The Advent Wreath is a holy reminder of how we are to become the light of Christ. All four candles represents a Sunday in Advent. As we journey toward the birth of Christ, we are to allow Christ to increase in us. At the Manger, we present ourselves to Him. Christ's Light then becomes one of us.

At no other time in the history of the United States, have we so desperately needed Christ's LIGHT. SO many people have lost their way. Jesus is the only WAY, the TRUTH, and the LIGHT. Mark's Gospel tells us this Sunday to be sober and alert. We are to be on the watch. When we have a hunger for the Lord, we long to see His face. Christ then comes to bring us His Light. Hunger for Christ this Advent season. Share Christ's light with one another.

May we prepare for Christ's coming as faithful servants doing the work God has intended us to do.

Entrusting you to the care of Our Lady,
Fr. Mark
