The hour is coming,
in fact has come,
when the vocation of woman
is being achieved in its fullness,
the hour in which woman
acquires in the world an influence,
an effect and a power
never hitherto achieved.

-Address of Pope Paul VI to Women,
Closing of the Second Vatican Ecumenical
Council ©Libreria Editrice Vaticana

Strengthen Your Hearts

How good is good enough? Do you have to be perfect to get to heaven? In the second reading this Sunday, Paul seems to think so when he tells us to be “blameless in holiness” (1 Thess 3:13.) In fact, he tells the Thessalonians who are pleasing God, to do even more. (4:1) Now Paul never considered himself as perfect: “I will rather boast most gladly of my weaknesses, in order that the power of Christ may dwell with me.” (2 Cor 12:7-9) But even with his weakness, Paul always did the best he could. So what should we strive for? Maybe we can take a hint from his phrase “strengthen your hearts.”

Think of athletes who try to do their best. A great ball player takes batting practice every day to improve his average. A tennis player will practice her serve to get more aces. A hockey player will keep skating during the summer to get faster. Good athletes are always looking for ways to improve themselves. The keep in shape so they can be stronger, faster, smarter. So what about good Christians? That same attitude is what Paul means by “strengthen your hearts.” And Advent is a good time to start.

As we prepare to celebrate the coming of the Lord, we can get ourselves in spiritual shape. Spiritual reading can give us a stronger prayer life. But like the athlete who can read about the rules or strategies of the sport, we get a stronger prayer life by actually praying. If our spiritual reading just makes us feel good, we may be wasting our time.

Hopefully, it will lead us to try praying more often and more seriously. Likewise, we can read about volunteering to feed the poor, but making the commitment and doing it is what strengthens the heart. And how can we be “blameless in holiness. . . at the coming of Our Lord?” Not by bragging about our goodness, but confessing what we have done wrong. Only God’s forgiveness can make us blameless.

Then as the Gospel says, we may have “the strength. . .to stand before the Son of Man.” (Lk 21:36)

“O Come, O Come, Emmanuel!” Our sanctuaries and our homes ring with these ancient words of invitation and welcome as we embrace the season of Advent. Quieting ourselves, much as the coming of winter stills and quiets the natural world, we seek to prepare a place for Christ to come again and to be born anew – for his come or “advent” – in our hearts and in our world.

— 2018 Sourcebook for Sundays, Seasons, and Weekdays – Liturgy Training Publications
Advent – The Meaning p. 1

First Sunday of Advent
Advent – a time for hope

Advent has always been a happy time for most people, even in difficult times, because there is something about Christmas and the coming of the Messiah and the coming of the Lord, and the realization of all the promises that God has made to His people find their fulfillment in a stable, a little child, a poor young teenage mother and her gravely worried husband into whose care God had placed this most precious twosome.

There’s something that stirs great hope in us. And so Advent is really a time for hope. It’s a time when we put aside major worries in our life and realize that God is with us.

This year Pope Benedict wrote his second encyclical on hope. And it’s a beautiful, short but beautiful, document. And he says for a Christian to have hope means to know that we are definitely loved, and that, whatever happens to us, we are awaited by love.

CATHOLIC CAMPAIGN FOR HUMAN DEVELOPMENT

Thank you for your generous support last week for the collection fo the Catholic Campaign for Human Development!

Vocation Corner November 28th

“I was raised in a loving Catholic family, yet it wasn’t until I joined the local parish youth group that my faith came alive. Led by our youth minister to pray before the Blessed Sacrament, I encountered a God who knew and love me intimately, and I dreamed about becoming his bride and serving him in the poor. In high school, my life was filled with studies, sports and friends. After graduating from Villanova University, I worked as an oncology nurse while also dating man I could see myself marrying. I seemed to have it all, but I couldn’t forget what God had placed deep in my heart as a 15-year-old. The immense joy and peace I experienced contemplating a religious vocations led me to leave everything and follow in our Lord’s footsteps. God’s dream for me came true on June 6, 2016 when I professed my final vows.

PRAYER FOR VOCATIONS

Gracious God
You have called us through Baptism to discipleship, believing in your Son, Jesus Christ, who has sent us to bring the Good News of salvation to the world.

We pray to you, asking that you grant us more priests and religious
who will help us build up your Church in the Diocese of Belleville and the world.

Stir up the grace of a religious vocation
in the hearts of many of our youth. Grant to them the willingness and generosity to give of themselves in service to our Lord Jesus and his people.

May a new generation
of priests, deacons, sisters and brothers be a sign of your presence among us.

We ask this in the name of Jesus the Lord. Amen.
