First Sunday fo Advent (Year C) – “Be Prepared”

Advent is a time of joyful expectancy as we look forward not just to the celebration of the Lord’s birth at Bethlehem but to his coming at the end of time.  The Gospel talks of these last days when the Lord will come in glory – it is a time to stay awake, praying at all times..

Prayer: Almighty ever-living God, only support of our human weakness, look with compassion upon the sorrowful condition of your children who suffer because of this pandemic; relieve the pain of the sick, give strength to those who care for them, welcome into your peace those who have died and, throughout this time of tribulation, grant that we may all find comfort in your merciful love. Through Christ our Lord.

The Act of Spiritual Communion (please click on the image)   –  May we grow in appreciation of the Eucharist; may those who have lapsed from the practice of their faith return to it with conviction and gratitude.  For our young people, that in a world of entertainment and distraction they may experience moments of reflection in which they can draw closer to God and discern the direction and meaning of their lives. Lord in your mercy hear our prayer.
