It’s finally here! Christmas time is here! Or is it?
While Christmas is getting close, it isn’t here quite yet. Instead, we are in a period of waiting, a time of preparation and longing. We are in the Advent season.
So before you jump into your favorite Christmas playlist, try as a family to listen to some beautiful Advent carols and songs, to really prepare your hearts for the coming of Jesus at Christmas. Here are a few you can enjoy:
O Come, O Come Emmanuel - LISTEN or LISTEN in LATIN
Light of the World - LISTEN
Come Thou Long-Expected Jesus - LISTEN
Love Comes Down - LISTEN
O Come, Divine Messiah - LISTEN
You’ll Come - LISTEN
Let All Mortal Flesh Keep Silence - LISTEN
Breath of Heaven - LISTEN

This Upcoming Week...
What do you think of when you hear the words "Communion of Saints"? Perhaps your mind immediately flies to one of the many saints in heaven, and you think, "I could never be that." Does it surprise you to find out that you are part of the Communion of Saints?
"For he commands his angels with regard to you, to guard you wherever you go" (Ps. 91:11).
How often does it occur to you that you are never alone? Yes, God is everywhere and always present with us, but He has given us someone else to be with us all the time: our guardian angels. The Diocese of Gary is dedicated to the guardian angels. So for us, the Feast of the Guardian Angels (October 2) is a special day.
