Nov. 28, 2016 (Advent 2016)

Sunday began a full 4 weeks of the Advent Season since Christmas is on a Sunday. Then themes in Advent have to do with the Second Coming of Christ (Weeks 1 and 2) (anticipation) and the First, historical Coming (Weeks 3 and 4) (remembrance). It is a season of hope. That’s why we read from the prophets of old, Isaiah. The readings are meant to excite us that something wonderful is about to happen and that we need to be ready. It is a good time to take inventory of where we are in our spiritual life as we “wait in joyful hope for the coming of Our Lord, and Savior, Jesus Christ.”
