Open Your Heart to Friendship with Jesus (#704, Advent 3)

Fr. Joel Homilies

Third Sunday of Advent (Year A) • The miracles of Jesus say Here Is Your God. We can become discouraged when we do not see God bringing justice and stopping evil. Being a follower of Jesus means trusting Jesus even when things don’t make sense to us.

Our friends teach us about ourselves. Jesus wants to be our best friend. In the light of this friendship you will learn more about yourself, and more about your friend Jesus. Here is your God! Open your heart to friendship with God.

Point to Ponder:

  • We are missionary disciples striving to lead all people to the Kingdom of God. ~ Parish Vision
  • As friends and followers of Jesus we are devoted to fostering households and communities of discipleship through the mission and ministry of the Catholic Church. ~ Parish Mission

Point to Discuss: Tell a friend how their friendship has blessed you. Talk to them about what it means to be friends with Jesus.
