Dec 11 – Homily – Fr Maximilian: Come to the Lord, He will Strengthen You
Homily #131211n ( 05min) Play - Today's readings present a different focus than the general theme of Advent. Instead of the Lord's coming, says Fr. Maximilian, we are encouraged to come to the Lord. We will have many difficulties in this life, but when we bring them to the Crucified Lord, He will console us and give us the strength to continue on. We can see this in the Martyrs who never lost track of eternity amid their sufferings and offer them the veneration that Pope St. Damasus I encourages us to.
