December 5 ~ Second Sunday of Advent

“Prepare the way of the Lord.” This is what the Church calls us to focus on in these opening weeks of Advent. How might we prepare for the coming of Christ now and at the hour of our death? St. Paul offers some ideas for what we need to do. He prays that our love will increase in knowledge and perception, that we will discern what is of value, and that we will live pure and blameless lives. St. Paul encourages us with the reminder that God has already begun this good work in us and will continue to complete it until the day of Christ Jesus. In this coming week, ask for the grace to keep the focus on Christ. Remember, that even in the midst of all that seeks to distract, God is with you.

We have had a few calls today with parishioners having received a text purportedly from Fr. Mario asking them to purchase $300 gift cards and to scratch of the security number and forward a picture of the gift card and security number.

DO NOT to respond to the text. It is not from Fr. Mario and is an effort to scam them. Fr. Mario would never ask parishioners to forward a picture of a gift card to him. These did not come from Fr. Mario, please do not respond to these requests.

Any requests will be sent via the bulletin, the web site, or announced at Mass.
