The Advent Journey is Started

Image Source: Mass in Advent via Lost Lambs Blog

Our journey into Advent has begun and we are on our path, but this is the most difficult phase. It is so easy to sin, but realize how much each sin hurt God. God died on the cross! He died for our sins, each one worthy of unbearable pain and He rose again for us. We too shall rise again. Let the peace of Christ be with all of us. Remember that Christ's words - after all of His pain - to his disciples were "Peace be with you."

Make time for penance and extra prayer this Advent along with Eucharistic Adoration. During this season of Advent let us also forgive those around us. Let us grow in love. "For whom is Jesus in the Most Blessed Sacrament? For me; because He loves me!" (St. Peter Julian Eymard).


O God, Who dost gladden us by the yearly expectation of our redemption, grant that we, who now joyfully receive Thine only-begotten Son as our Redeemer, may also without fear behold Him coming as our Judge, even the same Lord Jesus Christ, Thy Son: Who with Thee liveth and reigneth.
