This is the season of ADVENT -

The beginning of a new year!

From the Pastor

As a kid, I remember getting the house ready for guests. Remember how much preparation there was in making things just right? Remember the closet that held so many miscellaneous items? Remember how quickly the house returned to its former self after guests had arrived?

Or maybe it was getting ready to go out on a date? How long did you stand in front of the mirror before you knew that you were ready?

Perhaps it was that final test and all the preparation that went into your study? The point is this—preparation and anticipation always elicits action. So how are you getting ready for Advent, because our Jesus is coming?

The church and the believing community are taken off guard with Advent. We don’t know what to do with it, so we do nothing. After all, Christmas preparation began just after the Fourth of July weekend! Or we hold onto a bit of nostalgia and pull out that same, tired creche in half-hearted anticipation of something that hasn’t changed in two thousand years. And we miss the point, perhaps more than at any time before. No, the real savior is coming. That’s the one who enters our lives and compels us to change. Better said, this one transforms our understanding of life and our relationship with the Creator.

Maybe what we anticipate is more real in the daily bump and grind of our lives. However, one thing is for sure. We can try all day, but we will never top the one who beats swords into plowshares and spears into pruning hooks. And just maybe this is what you have been looking for. Unless, the daily bump and grind offers you satisfaction and a way out. Have you ever awakened before the alarm went off? We are urged to get ready. This is something you have never seen before, especially at such a premature hour. So get ready. He is coming soon!

Newark Diocese Pilgrimage to the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, D.C.

Study diet at the Broadway Diner. He's a regular - third seat at the counter!

Glory in the Highest

An angel announced his coming

To the one who bore the child...

The angels were right there watching.

For every tear and every smile...

The angels rejoiced in heaven;

Their praises shall surely reign...

Such voices would echo loudly

With joy they could not contain.


Glory to our God, whose wisdom never fails!

Glory to His name; these praises shall prevail!

For living in His presence, we know we are truly blessed!

Thanks be to our God...

We sing. "Glory in the Highest!"

An angel of the Lord comes down,

Each time we sing His praise...

An angel of the Lord abides,

To help us through our days...

An angel of the Lord surrounds,

To our hearts, these words declare:

An angel of the Lord stands near,

As we speak to God in prayer!

Glory to our God on High, who keeps us in His light!

Praises to the One above, who guards us through the night!

A child will come to lead the way, God's honor to attest!

Thanks be to our wondrous God...

Singing, "Glory in the Highest!"

So listen as He speaks His words...

So beautiful and bright!

And angels sing with all their might,

For this child of God's own light...

Let our words to Him ring true;

Let us worship and adore...

A child to come and set us free;

Filling hearts forevermore!

Glory to the Lamb of God, to be born to us on earth!

Glory and Honor to His name, for God showed us our worth!

His precious child, in the hands of those who would love and who detest...

Thanks and praises, as the angels sing:

"Glory in the Highest!"
