Week of Dec 8
Scripture: Mt 25:31 “When the Son of man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, then he will sit on his glorious throne. Before him will be gathered all the nations, and he will separate them one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goat…”
YouCat: Question 163 “What is the Last Judgment?”
Question: What is Guadete Sunday?
Virtue: Service – An act of helpful activity or aid.
Saint: St. Juan Diego
Faith Tid-Bit: ok…so Guadete Sunday and Advent is all about the joy of preparing for the birth of Christ, then why am I asking questions about the last judgment? Well, Advent is a joyous season and we are celebrating the birth of Jesus – when he took on flesh. But that is only part of the story. Jesus promised that He will come again to judge the living and the dead. During Advent we are not only preparing for the birth of Christ, we are also called to remember that we must always be prepared for Christ’s coming for only God knows the hour of the last judgment…how have you been spending your days? In the service of Christ I hope.
