MESSAGE FROM FATHER JENSON

 

This Sunday is Gaudete, or rejoice Sunday.As we journey through this Advent season preparing to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ our Savior, we seek to stir up a sense of wonder at the birth of our savior, and make that wonder part of our spirituality during this holy time.John the Baptist was the herald of Christís coming 2000 years ago.Today, you and I are to be heralds of Jesus for others around us.On this rejoice Sunday, strive to make time to wonder, just a bit, at what God has done for us in sending his son into our world.There is more mystery and majesty here than we have time to ponder in these few weeks before Christmas, but try to find a few minutes each day to think about Godís humble love for us that he displays in sending Jesus to be born of a poor virgin and dying on the cross for us.The creator of the stars of night does truly love us.May our Lady help us to love him back.

 

 

Father Glen Jenson, Pastor
