We’ve begun the Advent season, when we look to the Second Coming of Christ and prepare to celebrate his first coming. I welcomed the Advent season in Dallas, preaching at all the masses at St. Rita’s parish. I had four of our seminarians of the Missionaries of the Gospel of Life with me, and they helped to give pro-life literature to all the parishioners, and answer their questions.
It’s a great time of year – and it’s a time to be renewed in our pro-life commitment. Christ’s coming is enveloped in promises of justice, peace, and life. It is an opportunity to recommit ourselves to preparing the world for his coming by building a culture of life.
Let’s have a blessed Advent and a Merry Christmas!
