Chief Superintendent's Message - Advent 2020

May Mary Most Holy, the woman of expectation, accompany our steps at the beginning of this new liturgical year,

and help us to fulfil the task of Jesus’ disciples, indicated by the Apostle Peter. And what is this task? To account for the hope that is in us.

Pope Francis, Angelus, 11/29/20


In his Sunday Angelus on the first Sunday of Advent, our Holy Father, Pope Francis, shared that Advent is a time of hope and expectation. He calls upon us to focus on our encounter with the Lord.  He shares that this encounter is one that is continuous; our Lord is with us every day. He speaks of our anticipation of our eternal encounter with God, but he draws our eyes to the present. He shares, “The Lord comes every day, so that, with His grace, we might accomplish good in our own lives and in the lives of others.”  It is from this daily presence that we find our hope.
