Advent

  • 1st Sunday of Advent, Year C

    Watch!

    Readings: Jer 33, 14-16; Ps25, 4-5ab.8-9.10.14; I Thess 3, 12-4,2; Lk 21,25-28.34-36

    With the first Sunday of Advent we start a new liturgical year. The word of God for us today  speaks of „comings“. Whereas there are many speculations about the second coming of Christ, we ought to remember that when it will be and what it will be like is not ours to know. What we are certain about is that history is going somewhere. There is a goal ahead of us where Jesus Christ will be Lord of all. Our task in the present time is to be on the watch.

  • First Sunday of Advent Year C

    Theme: Expectation

    Here we go again! Another liturgical year has ebbed away and a new one is upon us. Like it or not, time is carrying us forward. Having come full circle to a new beginning, things nevertheless look quite familiar. When we read the ancient scriptural selections for yet another Advent, we wonder if there is anything new under the sun. We have heard these texts from John the Baptist, Paul, Luke, Jeremiah and Isaiah before and we more or less know what they are going to say; yet it is important for us always to remember that “the Word became flesh and dwelt among us” John 1:14. From the moment the incarnate word became flesh and blood, the course of human history was forever altered.
