Saying Yes to God Brings Joy to the World (#805, Advent 4)

Fr. Joel Homilies

Fourth Sunday of Advent (Year B) • Christmas is the birthday of not just of any king, but of the King of Kings. His birth is so important we are still in the Year of Our Lord. He leads us, serves us, loves us, and dies for us. His coming depended on the Yes of one young woman. Will you follow him, serve him, love him, welcome him? The whole world is waiting for your answer.

Point to Ponder: What did the Yes of Mary mean for all the souls waiting to enter Heaven?

Point to Discuss: What does it mean to be living in the Year of Our Lord (Anno Domini) 2017, now that you know that the Lord is Jesus Christ?

Point for Action: Sing Joy to the World. Let every heart prepare Him room.
