A WORD FROM OUR PASTOR
Welcome to Advent: We mark the passing of time by celebrating special occasions such as birthdays and anniversaries. Some days are more special for us than other days. Wedding days are special days and wedding anniversaries are special days. In one sense those special days are the same as every other day because the sun rises and sets in the same way and everybody else goes about their business in the normal way, but for the happy couple such a day is a special day, a day to be celebrated, a day for which to be thankful and grateful. For us Catholics advent is a special time of the liturgical year, a time of preparation for the arrival of the messiah. Today marks the beginning of a new cycle in the Church’s Liturgical life, which has a three year span, A-C. Having concluded year C, the cycle restarts from A. The word “Advent” or “Adventus” in Latin, is translated “coming” in English. Let us do something special during advent. This whole liturgical year we will be reading the Gospel of Mathew. So may be during this advent when you are home and have some time start reading the Gospel of Mathew. I wish you all a fruitful advent.
New Way of Looking at the Scripture: Thanks to Fr. Anthony Shonis for celebrating the Mass here at Precious Blood two weeks ago. As he mentioned during Mass he will be doing a catechetical teaching on the three Gospels of Matthew, Mark, and Luke. Fr. Shonis is an excellent teacher and also a man of punctuality. He will start the class right on time and will end right on time. The Advent Teachings will be done on the first three Mondays of Advent at 6:00pm in our Parish Hall. Please come and join if you can and I am sure it will be a great learning.
Secret of Marriage: A husband and wife were at a party chatting with some friends when the object of marriage counseling came up. "Oh, we'll never need that. My husband and I have a great relationship," the wife explained. "He was a communications major in college and I majored in theater arts. He communicates real well and I just act like I'm listening."
God’s blessings, Fr. Suneesh Mathew
First Sunday of Advent
December 1, 2019
"At an hour you do not expect, the Son of Man will come," says today's Gospel. Good stewards know that they are accountable to God for all they have and are and strive to live in readiness for His coming.
DIOCESAN PRAYER FOR VOCATIONS
God our Father, we thank you for calling men and women from the Diocese of Owensboro to serve in your Son's kingdom as priests, deacons and religious. We pray that you continue to inspire young men and women to respond courageously to your call and give themselves generously to the Church in service of the Gospel. Pour out your Holy Spirit upon our parishes, schools, and families and assist us in building a culture of vocations in which many will hear your call to serve your people. Help us to remain faithful to the call of the Gospel as we support and encourage vocations of sacrificial love in our youth. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen
Mary, Mother of the Church, pray for us!
Readings for next weekend will be
Isaiah 11:1-10 Romans 15:4-9 Matthew 3:1-12
We invite you to read and study these passages for your own reflection as we prepare for the liturgy we will celebrate as a parish community.
