Nov 30 – Homily – Fr Louis Maximilian: When God Turns Away From Us
Homily #141130n ( 13min) Play - When we turn away from the Lord, we sin, Father tells us. But the Lord can also turn away from us too. He does this by letting us have our own way; he abandons us to our own designs and desires, and we go from bad to worse. He does this to wake us up to our need for Him and His grace, and that recognizing our pitiful state, we may turn back to Him. Let us pray to Our Lady that She may acquire for us the grace to be watchful for the indications of God's will and that this Advent may be a time to prepare for His coming at Christmas, and to be ready for when He comes to meet us at the end of our time in this world.
