We are about ready to begin another church year. The first week of Advent marks the beginning of a new liturgical year. We joyfully prepare for the birth of Christ and are reminded that we must always be ready for when He comes again in glory.
A huge blessing this year is that our Pope has named this year the “Year for Consecrated Life.” Let us take time to celebrate the many men and women who have taken up the call to holiness through the call to the consecrated life.
