Advent Mission

Leaving today for Camas, WA where I will be preaching an Advent Mission at the Parish of St. Thomas Aquinas.

Faith and Covenant
A mission to confirm our faith and prepare us to live and celebrate our faith

1.Jesus, The Lord
We return to our roots as Followers of Jesus, the Son of God who has united himself with every human being, raising our human nature to an incomparable dignity, and drawing the body of Christ, the Church into intimate communion with God.

2.Mary, Model of Faith and Charity
It was from Mary and from the Church that Christ came; and from Mary and from the Church Christ has still to come for those who have never known him.

3.Peter, Faltering Faith and Faithful Companion
Whether in times of Transfiguration or moments of Agony, Peter is there speaking for us. He is a model both for daring proclamation and for faltering faith. But Jesus has prayed for him that when Peter turns back, he would strengthen his brothers and sisters.

4.Jonah, a Sign for this Generation
Still this is an evil generation that longs for a sign, but no sign will be given except the sign of Jonah. An obscure minor prophet is an example for us of how humanity struggles to listen to God.

5.Eucharist and Covenant
"I have come to my garden, my sister, my bride; I gather my myrrh and my spices, I eat my honey and my sweetmeats, I drink my wine and my milk. Eat, friends; drink! Drink freely of love!"
