Advent of Hope: Veni, Veni, Emmanuel!
The liturgical season of Advent is upon us. We share the hope and expectant joy with our new Catechumens and Candidates that we welcomed today in our parishes. I love the purple and rose colored vestments, and the overall feeling of wondrous beauty that radiates in our Church and amongst our friends and family as we prepare for the coming of Christ. We have hope as we yearn to feel the joy of His love astound as we embrace the Son of God. We soon will enter into the Christmas season and the joy of the birth of Christ will ignite the fire within our hearts to spread his love for us throughout the year.
