SECOND SUNDAY OF ADVENT:
John the Baptist the Forerunner
He is chosen, like all the prophets, and like all of the prophets he will infuriate the self-righteous and the evil. He will be murdered. Like all of the prophets (like all of us) he knows something is going to happen. God tells him so. But like us, he has no clue as to what will happen until he sees it. John is at the Jordan baptizing and among the crowd of the curious is an ordinary person, like us. Nothing makes this person stand out, but John sees beyond the ordinary to the unimaginable.
IMMACULATE CONCEPTION – December 9
The Bishops of the United States in 1847 petitioned Pope Pius IX that the Blessed Virgin Mary be declared patroness of the United States under the title of the Immaculate Conception. Since the usual feast day falls on Sunday this year, it has been moved to Monday and is not a holy day of obligation,but on Monday, December 9th, there will be Masses at 11AM (Eng.), 7PM (Pol.) and 8PM (Cro.).
POTLUCK FOR ALL WOMEN OF PARISH
