FIRST WEEK OF ADVENT
Happy New Year!! A little early for the civil greeting but as you all know the Church's year begins with the Advent season. I have entitled the scripture reflections An Advent Cathechism simply because the scripture for this season is precisely that. They talk about the meaning of Faith and Hope, give us images of the Lord, remind us of the basics of our belief. It is such a beautiful spiritual season that sometimes gets lost in the business shopping, cards and all those other things whcih go to make the Christmas season so special. The readings only take a minute and give you something, hopefully, to hang your hat on for the day.
I am giving you two new links. One has to do with the Franciscan Volunteer Ministry and the other with Holy Name Province of the Franciscan Order. The web pages are beautifully done.
