Weekly Note

Fr. Damian Zuerlein (December 20-21)   This is it. Like it or not, the final days of our preparation for the celebration of the birth of Jesus are here. You probably have lots of little things to get done before Christmas Eve. It is challenging to think of everything and everyone that needs attention during Christmas. Feel free to be really Catholic and remind folks that the Christmas season lasts until the Baptism of Jesus on January 11th. The Season does not end with Christmas, it begins with Christmas. There are more than 12 days of Christmas. You do not have to do all the Christmas “stuff” during Advent; you can actually do it during the Christmas season. So, there is still time to send out cards, give gifts, have parties, and enjoy the wonder of the Incarnation.

One piece of Christmas preparation that I would encourage you to do before the Advent season ends is to take the opportunity to celebrate the sacrament of Reconciliation. I understand that it does not feel like a celebration to confess your sins, but it really is a celebration to be forgiven. God’s gift of forgiveness offers a deep inner peace. Having our sins forgiven before Christmas should help us sense the presence of God during the Christmas celebrations whether that be having a simple glass of eggnog or singing at Midnight Mass. Our sins sometimes blind us to the presence of God in our midst. So, the sacrament can help us make Christmas a bit brighter and merrier. We will be offering opportunity for reconciliation on Monday and Tuesday at 11:00 am and 6:30 pm.  read more...
