Weekly Advent Reflections
In this second week of Advent we are invited to prepare God’s way. This video reflection always us to find comfort in the Scriptures.
Feast of St. Lucy–
St. Lucy is the patroness of the blind. She remained true to her calling. So often we can find ourselves blind to God’s presence; too often we are deaf to God’s word.
Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe –

It was in 1531 in Mexico that Juan Diego experienced the presence of Mary in his life. When she appeared to him she identified herself as a merciful and compassionate mother, keenly aware of suffering and sorrow. As a result of this event the Church now venerates Mary as the patroness of the Americas. Let us pray: Mary, because of your coming to Juan Diego, we have cause to sing and rejoice. Continue to be near all those who are hurting. Help us to appreciate Jesus’ abiding love; help us to share his presence by living lives of compassion and mercy. Amen.
"“Make it a practice to judge
persons and things in the most favorable light
at all times and under all circumstances.”
- St. Vincent de Paul
Second Week of Advent
As we begin this second week of the Advent season we are invited to “put on the heart and mind of Jesus” – an awesome challenge, but doable with the help of Scripture and God’s grace in abundance. May I cooperate, “preparing the way of the Lord.”
