Pastor's Message

“Be careful what you wish for!”  Perhaps you have heard the expression and you might wonder what this has to do with our faith.  Advent is the time we in a sense wish for Christmas - the coming of the Lord. Come, Lord Jesus!  This time of Advent is a time of waiting and preparation for the coming of Jesus. Are we ready to receive Him?  When Jesus comes we need to be prepared to receive Him fully into our lives. If we have not prepared and if we are not ready, then when Jesus comes we will be left out of the Kingdom of God.  So should we wish for the coming of Jesus, and wait joyfully for His coming? Most certainly! As long as this joyful waiting is accompanied by our careful preparation for the coming of Jesus. Christmas recalls for us the day in which our Savior came to live among us, His first coming to be with His people.  We come during this Advent season to celebrate once again this great gift, Immanuel, God with us. In addition, we recall soberly and await steadfastly the second coming of Jesus at the end of time, when all will be completed. At this coming Jesus will complete His mission of Salvation and welcome all who are prepared to receive Him, into the Heavenly Kingdom!  Being prepared for this second coming of Jesus is essential to our salvation. The Gospel calls us to be vigilant! Being vigilant for Jesus, means opening our heart, mind and soul to Him now, through time spent in prayer and regular reception of the sacraments. The sacraments are our opportunities now to encounter the Risen Christ, so that we will recognize Him when he comes and joyfully go out to meet Him! Our Blessed Mother whom we honor under the title of the Immaculate Conception, this Monday, is a perfect model for our Advent waiting. Lord, help us to trust and believe in You as did Mary our Mother. As we encounter Your real presence in the Most Holy Eucharist, may we be prepared to receive Your gift of salvation at any time!  So, indeed, let us joyfully wish for Jesus to come. But be prepared for what you wish for!
