Ponderings of a Parochial Vicar
My Dear Parishioners,
This week we begin the beautiful season of Advent. This is the first season of the Church year
and we joyfully anticipate the coming of our Savior Jesus Christ. Unfortunately, the beauty of
this season is often lost in the preparations for
Christmas. Tree decorating, parties and shopping seem to be the overriding focus rather than
the interior conversion and preparation for Immanuel “God is with us”. We are to expect the
Messiah. The Catechism of the Catholic Church
says:
When the Church celebrates the
liturgy of Advent each year, she
makes present this ancient expectancy of the Messiah, for by sharing
in the long preparation for the Savior's first coming, the faithful renew
their ardent desire for his second
coming. By celebrating the precursor's birth and martyrdom, the
Church unites herself to his desire:
‘He must increase, but I must decrease.’
To prepare ourselves properly for the arrival of
the Messiah we must focus, in a most particular
way, on the interior conversion of our hearts.
This is why Advent, like Lent, is a penitential
season. From the 4th century, the season was
kept as a period of fasting and abstinence as
strict as in Lent. This has been lessened, but
while fasting is no longer mandated, it is still a
good and praiseworthy act, which I would encourage you to practice. Additionally, the vestments are purple and the Mass has less singing.
This is also why the Gloria is no longer sung.
What joy we will have when we hear it again at
Christmas.
During Advent, it is easy to get caught up in the
celebration of Christmas, but this Advent, let us
not miss the wonderful opportunity to grow closer to God. Let us reflect on our lives, make frequent use of the Sacrament of Reconciliation
(Confession) and allow the Season of Advent to
penetrate our hearts. May we truly use the next
four weeks to prepare for the arrival of our Lord
and Savior, Jesus Christ.
Happy Advent! Your servant in Christ,
Fr. John
