    ST. ANN-STONEWALL

  • FIRST SUNDAY OF ADVENT December 01, 2019

    Our Parish Mission Statement

    We, the Catholic Church of Desoto Parish, embrace the universal mission

    of the Church. As members of the Body of Christ, the Holy Spirit calls us

    together to worship the Father: By celebrating God’s presence among us in

    both Word and Sacrament; by proclaiming the Good News of Jesus’

    redemptive death and resurrection and by expressing God’s unconditional,

    liberating and healing love in our service to others in the world.

    IN REFLECTION

    The Son of Man will come at an hour you least expect.

    ~Matthew 24:37–44 As we turn our calendars to December, we begin the

    season of preparation for Jesus’ coming into the world and

    into our lives. However, Advent is not only a time in

    which we wait for the Lord to come to us; we are

    reminded today that our lives should be a journey as well,

    a journey to God. Even as we prepare for the Lord’s

    coming at Christmas, let us also continue walking our own

    path to the Lord.

    Today’s readings emphasize that we are called to do more

    during Advent than just wait for the Lord’s coming. We

    are called to act. Isaiah calls all people to come in peace

    and light to the mountain of the LORD. Saint Paul

    encourages the Romans to live in the light, conducting

    themselves appropriately. Jesus warns his disciples that the

    Second Coming could occur at any time and they must be

    prepared. Let us prepare right now by listening attentively

    to the word of God.

    Question of the week: What am I doing that I would not

    want seen in the light of day, or at the hour I do not

    expect? What do I need to do to change this?
