First Sunday in Advent- December 3, 2006
Let us prepare this Advent for the celebration of Jesus’s birthday as well as for the time when Jesus will come again.  Our hearts must be free of earthly attachments so that we can be His instruments of love. We will try do this by being patient, accepting others view points, caring, showing acts of kindness and forgiving others.
