ADVENT OF DIVINE INTERVENTION

Today is the First Sunday of Advent and we begin a New Liturgical Year (B) in the calendar of the Church. Advent means ‘Coming’ and our liturgy throughout this period will focus on the ‘coming of Jesus’ as the humble Messiah, King and Lord. Advent reminds us of Jesus’ first coming, which took place in Bethlehem over two thousand years ago and it calls us to be aware that Jesus Christ will come again in glory to save us and as judge of both the living and the dead. We must wait for this divine intervention not with fear but in joyful hope.

Scripture indicates that no human being knows the time or day when Christ will come again but we must be ready for him (Matt 24: 36-44; Mark 13:32-37; Luke 17:26-37), because God’s time scheme is different from ours (Isaiah 55:8-9; Psalm 90). Thus, the Gospel (Mark 13:33-37) encourages us to ‘Stay awake’  with a heart that longs to make changes so that God’s Will would be done on earth as it is in heaven. Advent is the season to be spiritually awake in prayer and in our effort to love, serve and glorify God. To be awake is to be aware that we live in a beautiful world created by God despite the crisis we face in life, and that we are the work of God’s hand, constantly in need of God’s intervention in this world. Our Prayer is: Let us see, o Lord, your mercy and grant us your salvation.  

                 Welcome to the Season of Advent!
                    HAPPY SUNDAY! 
FR. FRANCIS, MSP
