An Advent Note from the Pastor
"Here we are in the Season of Advent; a new liturgical year is upon us and our preparation for Christmas is in full swing. Yet, this busiest time of year calls us to draw close to others, above all to God, who became flesh and lived with us. Contemplation and car pooling? Meditation and manic shopping? How do we carve out moments of quiet when we open ourselves to God's presence?
Perhaps we have to lower our sights from hours spent around hearths and lengthy readings or litanies. Between traffic jams and parking lot crushes, scribbling holiday notes and decking our halls, there may still be ten minutes--or even five--when the family (which may mean something as informal as those who share meals and lodging) can sit quietly around the lighted Advent wreath. Once a day, once a week, or perhaps only once during this season of Preparation--take the time or make the time to be present to the Lord who comes."
Fr. Edgar and the Cathedral staff join me to offer you our prayers during this season. MARANATHA--Come Lord Jesus.
