STEWARDSHIP:
Why not celebrate a counter cultural Christmas? 
(Continued from last week) Christmas should not bean occasion for selfishness:
We Christians believe that a freelychosen poverty (as opposed to the kind of poverty that is imposedon us by forces beyond our control) is liberating. It frees us fromstress and anxiety. It helps us to “let go” of our dependence onpossessions, status and inappropriate relationships. Like theinfant Jesus, we let go absolutely and entrust ourselves to God’sprovident care. We become poor in spirit, stewards of all God’smaterial and spiritual gifts.
STEWARDSHIP:
Why do we put off doing good untiltomorrow? Why do we wait to be wealthy before giving? Isnot the gift of ourselves better than money, and is thereany time when we could not offer a tear or a smile tosomeone who is suffering? Cannot a word from usstrengthen someone in distress? Cannot an act of purelove coming from our depths brighten a sad life?

December 19, 2010Dear Parish Family,Today is the Fourth Sunday of Advent. This weekendthe fourth and final candle will be lit on our Advent wreath.We are only days away from celebrating Our Lord’s Birthon Christmas.The Advent season is usually a busy one and thisyear was no different. But despite the busyness of our days many of you came out to take advantage of our Silent Nights. The church on these special nights isilluminated and truly becomes a sanctuary of peace in afrazzled hectic world. As the song, “You Are Mine”, says:“I (the Lord) will come to you in the silence”.Last weekend we collected and distributed items fromour Giving Tree. Over 1,000 gifts were collected andgiven to local charities. Thank you!! A big thank you goesto Glenna Connelly, Mary Menditto, the members of theHuman Concerns committee, and the youth volunteerswho helped to sort the gifts for distribution. Many handsmake light work!This week our church will be transformed to abeautiful Christmas environment thanks to Fr. Kevin, histeam, and your generosity to our Decorating collection.Enjoy this last week of Advent longing. Be sure to findtime to be alone with the Lord this week in prayer.Thank you, in advance, to Steven Taylor and our 2choirs for the beautiful music they will be providing for our parish family this Christmas (as they do for us each weekthroughout the year!).On behalf of the priests, deacons, sisters, and staff may you and your families have a Blessed and MerryChristmas. May the Peace and Joy of the Savior be yoursthis Christmas and throughout the upcoming New Year!Thank you for your Stewardship of Time, Talent, andTreasure and for all that you do for our parish.Love,Fr. Larry
