Theme: Hope!

As we hear the scripture for the second Sunday of Advent, we can almost hear the people of the day shouting in excitement waiting for the messiah. If there were newspapers in Jesus’ time, then surely he would have made the headline news! The event of God becoming human in Jesus Christ is not just an editorial comment but is, in fact, the headline news reading that ‘the Word has become flesh. He now lives among us!’ God becoming human in Jesus Christ was the event of the century and the millennium that would change the world forever. Today, this is not just regular news but great news!

The Decree of Indulgence for Divine Mercy Sunday grants a plenary or full indulgence to those who satisfy certain conditions established by the Church and a partial (incomplete) indulgence to those who fulfill some but not all or the conditions.

A plenary indulgence means that by the merits of Jesus Christ, the Blessed Virgin Mary and all the saints, the full remission of the temporal punishment due to sacramentally forgiven sins is obtained. The person becomes as if just baptized and would fly immediately to heaven if he died in that instant. 

A partial indulgence means that a portion of the temporal punishment due to forgiven sin is remitted. Partial indulgences are received either by doing some act to which a partial indulgence is attached (e.g. praying a partially indulgenced prayer), or by the incomplete fulfillment of the conditions attached to a plenary indulgence.

Theme: Salvation is here

The annual commemoration of the baptism of Jesus allows each one of us to pause and consider not only that inaugural event of Jesus’ public ministry but also our own baptism. Those who were baptized as adults and shared in the experience of the catechumenate can readily appreciate the process of Christian initiation; those who were baptized in infancy can appropriate the catechumenate experience later in life while learning from those who have handed on to them the rich heritage of the faith. Each year, both the original Christians and adult converts to Christ have the opportunity to become renewed in their baptismal commitment by sharing in the preparation of the catechumens who are baptized at the Easter vigil.
