Advent: The Forgotten Season of the Church – Dec 03 – Homily – Fr Joachim

Views 126


 

On the First Sunday of Advent (Dec 03, 2023),Fr Joachim reflects in the homily at New Bedford, on how Advent has sadly become "the forgotten season of the Church." The time of anticipation is skipped, celebrations that focus on everything but the actual meaning of Christmas begin prematurely, and then, as soon as Baby Jesus arrives, the party is over! Rediscover the true joy of Christmas by living patiently and fully the season of waiting and expectation.

Ave Maria!
