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.

Making Use of Every Second

Monsignor Michael Billian: In the bank of time, there are no balances and no overdrafts. Each day, a new account is open for us. Each night, whatever remains is written off, lost, gone forever. Every day’s 86,400 seconds must be invested wisely in commodities that will hold their value from day to day, quarter to quarter, year to year, and beyond.

Cleaning Toilets with a Smile

Father Philip Smith: The reason we smile when we perform acts of service is because we know that God is helping us overcome our selfishness, that God is helping us serve and touch the lives of other people and share God’s joy with them.

Holy Trinity: It’s a Mystery, Believe it!

Monsignor Michael Billian: When we look at the Holy Trinity, there is so much we can embrace. You can look at the Trinity from inside-out. You can look at the Trinity from outside-in. And either way you look at the Trinity, we can find value and lessons for our life.

Running the Race

Father Philip Smith: God didn’t create us to be spectators. God created us to run, he created us to go out into the world and to share his love and mercy.
