Click here to download and listen to this homily (11 minutes) given by Fr Thomas Weise at St Rose of Lima parish in Wrangell AK. Happy Catholic New Year! It is time to get ready for the coming of the Lord at Christmas and at the End of Time. We are to prepare the way of the Lord in our lives and in our land. Here a few Catholic New Year's resolutions I will be doing this Advent of joyful waiting. 1) Read the Gospel of Matthew before Christmas, 2) Spend a few more minutes in Prayer for Others and our World each day, 3) Become a Peace Maker by beating my sword into a pruning hook and fasting from any violent thoughts or actions. Will you join me?
Readings: Isaiah 2:1-5; Psalm 122; Romans 13:11-14; Matthew 24:37-44
