First Sunday of Advent

Advent is a time of waiting. The prayers of Advent ask us to yield to God, to surrender to his will, to wait for God. We are the clay, God is the potter. We have no claim for the design of our life or to ask for a peculiar specification. Let us acquiesce to God’s gentle mercy and forgiveness.             ~ Fr. Matt


Solemnity of Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe

“What is expected and demanded of me?” is the crucial question of this Feast. Someone calls us, makes demands, and waits for us. Who are they? Where do we find them? How long must they wait for us?              ~ Fr. Matt



Thirty-Second Sunday in Ordinary Time

To know and be known by Jesus is to be ready to receive him every day. Unfortunately we relegate Jesus to Sunday or a special time of day. Wisdom is knowing things and having experienced them.      ~ Fr. Matt
