Fourth Week Reflections


In our last week of Advent, we are invited to experience the love of Christ, as well share that gift with others. It is love that brings Jesus into our world and it is love that transforms our being. Advent has prepared us for the coming of Christ, and this last week brings it all together. "God so loved the world that he sent his only Son" (John 3:16). And it is because of that love that we are called to be loving to the stranger, oppressed, and marginalized.

Advent Wreath Prayer for Fourth Week of Advent
Father in heaven, you so loved us that You sent Your Son, among us as Savior and Lord. Fill us with Your blessing, that we may grow in love and continue to live our Christian faith.

Begin quote The most important thing that can happen to a person is to encounter Jesus: the encounter with Jesus who loves us, who has saved us, who gave his life for us --to encounter Jesus. And we walk to encounter Jesus. – -Pope Francis
