Nov 27 – Homily – Fr Dominic: WAKE UP, Jesus is coming

Views 1538



We have come into Advent, that period of joyful preparation, penance, and sacrifice that wakes us up to the coming of Christ at Christmas. G. K. Chesterton wrote that the problem with the modern ideas of love is that there is no expectation of sacrifice; weddings are at the beach, not in front of the altar. Let us ask Our Lady to prepare us to meet the Christ-Child by being more generous, prayerful, and loving--particularly when it hurts a bit.

Ave Maria!
