4th Sunday of Advent
Dear Epiphany Family,
We are just about a week from Christmas. What a beautiful blessing and opportunity we have to welcome more of our brothers and sisters to Mass! Jesus draws all of us to him and we can help others to see Jesus in us by the welcome we give – our smiles, our patience, our kindness, the acceptance of perhaps not having “my” pew or “my” parking spot, and more. While we celebrate Jesus’ birth on Christmas, we can also welcome him in our brothers and sisters that we wish we saw more often at Mass. Our hospitality and kindness could go a long way in helping others open their hearts to encounter Jesus at Mass beyond Christmas. Thank you in advance for your hospitality! Let us also pray that we welcome Jesus more fully into our lives as well as for those he is calling to draw closer to him.
