From the Pastor

December 10th – Second Sunday Advent

 

My Dear St. Bernadette Family,

One nice thing about our American way of doing this season is it is easy to see the choice we face. Do we give into materialism and greed or do we “repent” as John the Baptist demands? Do we prepare the way for gifts or do we prepare the way for the Lord?

The stakes are high. John tells us that “one mightier than I is coming after me.” Jesus is coming anew into our world and into our life, will we prepare or will we miss this opportunity. Our opening prayer in Mass urges us to “make haste to meet” the Son. We must be clear in the choices we make during this time of year.

I encourage you to prayerfully spend time reading and re-reading the first reading from Isaiah (40:1-11). It is a message of hope for all people and a beautiful spiritual direction for all who ponder what it means to prepare the way for the Lord. Gathering, carrying and comforting God’s people is the way to prepare His way and make Him known when He comes

With Love,

Fr. Tom
