Merry Christmas! Today is the day we celebrate the coming of God to us in the flesh, in the person of Jesus Christ. If you are visiting our parish to celebrate with us, welcome! We invite you to come back, especially if you live in the area and are looking to deepen your relationship with Jesus.
If you are a regular attendee at our Sunday Masses, I hope you have enjoyed the Advent reflections linking the incarnate body of Jesus to the same flesh we find in the Eucharist (the reflections can be found on our parish website). To finish the series, I will share a bit on proven Eucharistic miracles to further demonstrate the connection between the baby who was born to Mary on this day and the Eucharist we have celebrated every day since the Resurrection.READ MORE
As Advent comes to a close in this fourth week, the word we will focus on is awe. The word awesome is probably one of the most incorrectly used words in the English language these days.

God Himself is awesome. So, as we have been focusing on the Incarnation and the Eucharist this season, if we truly are thinking about them correctly, we should be inspired with a sense of awe that should only increase the more we think about them.READ MORE

The word for this week’s reflection, showing the connection between the mystery of the Incarnation with the mystery of the Eucharist, is love. God is pure love. The Catechism tells us, “God’s very being is love…God himself is an eternal exchange of love…” (CCC #221).READ MORE
