2 FROM THE TEE BOX A Few Thoughts from Our Pastor From the Tee Box! December 5-6, 2015 The Second Sunday of Advent Dear Friends, In the Prayer after Communion for this weekend s Mass, we pray in these words, Lord, teach us to judge wisely the things of earth and hold firm to the things of heaven. On this the Second Sunday of Advent, I invite all of us to ask ourselves what implications this prayer could have for us. What does it mean for us to, judge wisely the things of earth? And what does it mean for you and me to, hold firm to the things of heaven? I ve said before that I never want to be seen as trying to speak for anyone. For me, these words are comforting and challenging at the same time. They serve as a reminder of the gift that we have now and the eternal gift that is to come. That s the consoling side of the prayer, for me, at least. The challenging part? Well, it s a reminder of the road map that we should be using, our spiritual GPS, if you will. When we lose site of what we re destined for namely, our return to our ultimate home, with God, in heaven that s when the wheels start to come off the wagon, as the expression goes. We all know that Advent can be a time of reorienting ourselves toward a holier way of life. We do this, not out of fear, but in a spirit of anxious, joyful waiting. Remember, like we said last week at Mass, the beginning and the end (of our days) is nowhere nearly as important at the in-between. Have a great week! Sincerely, The parish office will close at 11:00 AM on Monday, December 7th for its annual Christmas gathering and remain closed through Tuesday, December 8th for The Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary Mass Times Monday, December 7th 8:15 am & 6:30 pm Tuesday, December 8th 8:00 am (School liturgy), 12:00 noon & 6:30 pm Fr. Trey Nelson Pastor
