A Word From Father John
December 10 -In our gospel this Sunday, we hear John the Baptist, whose task is to prepare the way of the Lord, proclaiming a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins. While all of us, who have been baptized, have experienced the forgiveness of sins through that sacrament, unfortunately that is not the end of our sinful ways. As we journey through life, we accumulate bad habits and insecurities that cloud our spirits and keep us from recognizing and utilizing our spiritual gifts. Yet, in responding to the call of Advent to be watchful and alert, inspired by the Holy Spirit, we seek to throw off the veil that veils our spirit. One important step we can take to aid in that process is to celebrate the Sacrament of Penance. Read more.
