From Our Pastor

3rd Sunday of Advent/2014

DO NOT PREPARE YOUR JOYS

Fr. Rich

Dear Parishioners, Friends and Guests,

It’s fascinating to me that right smack in the middle of Advent, a season dedicated to preparing, getting ready, being awake and alert, the Church gives us a Sunday dedicated to joy. Now, what’s so fascinating about that, you might ask? Well, to be honest, most of the things that have brought me joy I haven’t been prepared for … they came as a total surprise, a shock to the system, a tickle of the funny bone. Joy catches us by surprise. What could the Church be trying to teach us? What is God trying to teach us about life, about faith? There is no more surprising event — and joyful — in the history of the world than the birth of Jesus. Just ask Mary of Nazareth who knows a little something about surprises. Oops, we are getting ahead of ourselves; that is next week’s gospel. Get ready for it. Or not.

Happy Advent Walking!
Fr Rich
