Gospel Photo of the Week
Advent is right around the corner and there is plenty going on here at St. Anthony. Advent signifies the beginning of a new year in the life of the Church, it’s a time for new beginnings. The word advent itself means arrival and “the Church turns our attention to the two comings of Christ. Both were unexpected. No one expected God to take on flesh and become human; and Jesus warns us that the second coming will be at a time we do not expect. The Church also considers the coming of Christ that exists between the two comings, His coming to us in the present through sacraments, persons and circumstances of our lives…May our faith and our reason lead us to be especially awake to Christ’s presence this Advent season, and may our hearts be humble and desirous enough to welcome His presence in the yet unimagined ways He will reveal Himself. May He grow in our lives as He grew in the life of Mary.”
Advent begins on December 1 and is a time for us to draw ourselves closer to Christ. Over the next several weeks, we will have several opportunities here at St. Anthony to help you do this. I invite you to take advantage of this time to bring yourself, and your family closer to God.
A great way to do this is by signing up for the Best Advent Ever from Dynamic Catholic at www.dynamiccatholic.com/best-advent-ever. By signing up you will receive a daily email reflection to assist you in your journey throughout Advent.
Spiritual reading is a great way to enhance your faith life; at the beginning of Advent, we will have available copies of the book “I Thirst: 40 Days with Mother Teresa” which is a compilation of short reflections from Mother Teresa.
The Eucharist is the “source and summit” of our faith, what better way to come closer to Jesus than receiving Him in the sacrament celebrated at Mass and learning more about the Mass. Beginning Monday November 25 we will offer Mass at 6:00 p.m. followed by a viewing of the series The Mass by Bishop Robert Barron. This will occur each Monday during Advent.
Advent is a time of renewal and new beginnings. There is perhaps no better way to achieve this than through the Sacrament of Reconciliation. The Sacrament will be available on Tuesday evenings throughout Advent. Beginning November 26, through December 17, I will be available in the confessional from 7:00 p.m. until 9:00 p.m.
There is a lot happening here at St. Anthony over the next several weeks, I hope to see you there. Whether you participate in all or just one or two of these, I encourage you to spend this time in prayer that you may be drawn closer to our Lord.
With so much going on here at St. Anthony it can be difficult to stay up to date. This would be a great time, if you have not already done so, to sign up for our new communication tool Flocknote. This allows us to communicate with you via email or text so that you are current with what’s going on in our parish. You can sign up at flocknote.com/StAnthonyTM or by texting StAnthonyTM to 84576.
