Letters From A Pastor to His People December 15, 2019
I want to say a few things about our second reading, and not only because its a letter from my namesake, but because the very important topic of patience is addressed. "You too must be patient," says Saint James. "Take as an example of hardship and patience, brothers and sisters, the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord."
Patience. Oh boy. How many of us struggle with this virtue? How many of us confess impatience? Just watch the Bears if you want proof. Or go to the Touhy/Prospect/Northwest Highway intersection. Or watch the Bears. Oh, wait did I already mention that?
How the Grinch Stole Christmas, is a classic movie to watch around this time of year. My favorite version of this film is the classic animated one. The title can be very alarming…how could a person actually steal Christmas? Sorry for any spoilers, but despite the Grinchs best efforts he cant steal Christmas he cant keep it from coming, nobody can.Through the reprehensible actions of the Grinch, he, without intending to, revealed the true spirit of Christmas.
Whether you are single, a busy parent with kids, or emptynesters, you can celebrate Advent like you are actually anticipating the coming of Christ which is the whole point. Its a spiritual journey!
When you know what the season is meant to be, you will more likely do the kinds of things that emphasize that purpose. Please visit our Advent 2019 page to explore the various opportunities to help you deepen your spiritual experience this Advent season.
Advent Penance Services December 16 @ 700pm in the Church.

It is that time of year when we ask for gifts for ourselves. What if we replaced our Christmas List with the following prayer? It was composed by André Zirnheld, a paratrooper in the British Special Air Service killed in action in Libya in 1942. This was found among his personal effects
