Desperation for Jesus

Father Jeremy Miller: We come here every week to be desperate for Jesus, to know that we cannot fix everything in our life, to know that we are not in complete control and to place all of that at the altar, at the foot of Jesus, knowing that even if he doesn’t heal us immediately of the affliction we bring before him, we will receive the embrace of a God who loves us more than we could ever imagine.

Father Jeremy Miller: As we embark upon this season of Lent, let’s not see these next 40 days as busywork. But rather let’s see them as precisely what they are, which are Jesus’ remedy, Jesus’ medication if you will, and our surest path to reaching our full potential as sons and daughters of God.

The Full Experience of Advent

Father Jeremy Miller: We look backward to his coming in history 2,000 years ago. We look forward in hope to his coming in majesty at an unknown hour, as Jesus says in the Gospel. But we can’t forget about his daily advent, in which he desires in all sorts of ways, to come into our hearts, to enter in our lives, in a new way.
