From Fr. Rich

1st Sunday of Advent/2015


Fr. Rich

Dear Parishioners and Friends,

Paul Tillich, a prominent Protestant theologian of the last century, once said, “The first duty of love is to listen.” As we take our first step on our Advent Journey, our first task in preparing our hearts for Christmas is to focus on this: listening.

Be honest when you answer this question: Are you a good listener? Would anyone who knows and loves youBulletin 11.29.15 answer that question about you differently?

What are the qualities of good listening?

When do you tend not to listen well? What can be done about that?

Why is listening important in a relationship? Do you agree that it is love’s first duty? What makes Tillich say this?

Here’s a suggestion: let’s do whatever it takes to be better listeners by Christmas.

Happy Advent!
Fr. Rich
