Happy 4th Sunday of ADVENT!

Greetings, dear UPRISE movement-makers!

The Advent candle wreath image of ALL FOUR CANDLE’S LIT is filled today with such joy and excitement!  It means that Christmas is nearly here!

This Advent of preparation has brought forth so many beautiful examples of our fellow Christians preparing for the Incarnation, the Word Made Flesh, in Love for all of us!  Simply amazing…

Thank you to the UPRISE movement-makers this Advent who:

  • As a 7th grader, filled their UPRISE Journal of their 14 Works of Mercy in three of the four weeks of Advent, God Bless you, dear young lady!
  • As nearly-retired person, nearly filling their UPRISE Journal, frustrated they were not able to “Visit the Imprisoned.
  • Families with such small children packing the Sacrament of Reconciliation, modeling by their own actions the priority of a pure heart to receive the Baby Jesus.

Tomorrow, Advent will be over for another year – may THIS year’s Christmas be truly your unique encounter with our Lord – and may the Hope, Peace, Joy, and Love you experienced, preparing for the coming of the Christ Child, FILL your heart with his presence.

Blessings to all!
