Fr. Joel’s homily for Dec 13

Fr. Joel Homilies

Adv3 – Rejoice, the Lord is Near (7:50)

Advent, 3rd Sunday. Rejoice in the Lord always, the Lord is near! John the Baptist calls his listeners to their deepest desires – Peace, Joy, and Unconditional Love. These desires can only be filled by God. Advent is the season of realizing our need for God and of refusing all the things that fail to satisfy. Just as we rejoice in the Lord, so also God rejoices in us. (13 Dec 2009)
