As the Lord invites us to remain on the way at this
pivotal time in the history of San Antonio may we not
respond reluctantly but with joy and with haste.
How can we respond otherwise to our loving
God’s urgent call.

Remembering "the Lord has done great things" in the past, he is making an act of faith and hope - that God will come to Israel in its present need, that He'll do even greater things in the future.
Philippians 1:4-6, 8-11
This is what the Advent readings are all about: We recall God's saving deeds - in the history of Israel and in the coming of Jesus. Our remembrance is meant to stir our faith, to fill us with confidence that, as today's Epistle puts it, "the One who began a good work in [us] will continue to complete it" until He comes again in glory.
That's the message of John, introduced in today's Gospel as the last of the great prophets. But John is greater than the prophets. He's preparing the way, not only for a new redemption of Israel, but for the salvation of "all flesh".
John went throughout the whole region of the Jordan, proclaiming a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins, as it is written in the book of the words of the prophet Isaiah:
A voice of one crying out in the desert: "Prepare the way of the Lord, make straight his paths. Every valley shall be filled and every mountain and hill shall be made low. The winding roads shall be made straight, and the rough ways made smooth, and all flesh shall see the salvation of God."
Mark your calendars.
We would like to invite the men and women of the community to an early morning "Bible Sharing" from 7:00am to 8:30am in the Molchen Hall. Bring your bibles to reflect on the scriptures, sharing and praying with one another. Come enjoy a special time with God!

Have you checked this website? The third most common religion is Fallen-Away Catholics. Let’s bring them home! Unfortunately, most of them are our own families. Invite a family member or friend who has been away to attend a Sunday Mass with you, pray with them, break bread with them. Let them know that they are welcomed back.
