Message from Pastor:

SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 28, 2021 FIRST SUNDAY
 OF ADVENT
1) Jeremiah 33:14-16
2) 1 Thessalonians 3:12–4:2
3) Luke 21:25-28, 34-36

FOCUS: May this Advent draw us ever more deeply into the Paschal Mystery.

Today’s readings have a theme of preparation. The prophet Jeremiah speaks for the Lord, telling the Israelites of the days that are coming when the Lord will fulfill the promise [he] made to the house of Israel and Judah. This promise was one that said he would bring forth a savior, born of the house of David. Saint Paul tells the Thessalonians that they should conduct themselves in a way pleasing to God and to be blameless in holiness before our God and Father at the coming of the Lord Jesus with all his holy ones. And finally, in Luke’s Gospel, Jesus vividly describes what it will be like when the Son of Man comes with power and great glory. He tells his disciples to be vigilant at all times and to be ready to stand before him in judgment.

It is fitting that the Scriptures speak of being prepared, for that is a state of being we ought to maintain – at least spiritually. We know Christ will come again, we just do not know when. And so as we begin our Advent time in anticipation of celebrating the anniversary of Christ’s birth, we also “wait in joyful hope for the coming [again] of our Savior.”

Each year, on this first Sunday of Advent, the universal Church begins a new liturgical year. We examine, once again and still, the fullness of the Paschal Mystery in all its facets. The Paschal Mystery refers to Christ’s passion, death, resurrection, and glorious Ascension, i.e., the means by which he accomplished our salvation. But our liturgical year is so much more than an annual history lesson on the life of Christ. It is an opportunity to immerse ourselves into all that Jesus did and taught, and to relate it to our own redemption – here and now in 2021. For “by dying, he has destroyed our death, and by rising, restored our life” (Preface, Easter I).

This Paschal Mystery is at the heart of every liturgy – we celebrate what God has already done for us and we anticipate the fullness of the Kingdom to come. It is in the Lord’s Prayer, as we say, “thy Kingdom come, thy will be done.” It is in the creed we profess, “he will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead.” We have spoken the words of the mystery in liturgies past: “Christ has died, Christ is risen, Christ will come again.” And we have sung, or recited, or heard others do so, that wonderful verse from the Book of Revelation: Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty, who was, and is, and is to come (Rev 4:8).

As we begin Advent we welcome the opportunity to grow in faith and in conformity to Christ. May our preparation for the celebration of his birth, and his awaited second coming, be one that draws us ever more into the Paschal Mystery, and enables us to be blameless in holiness before our God and Father.
