FOURTH SUNDAY OF ADVENT

GOOD NEWS!   2 Sm 7:1–5, 8b–12, 14a, 16 / Rom 16:25–27 / Lk 1:26–38


    In the whole of the New Testament, Mary appears only a handful of times. She is, of course, present at the birth of Jesus and at his death. She comes looking for her son in the temple when he’s twelve and again when he’s preaching. She lets him know that the time has

come for his first miracle when he’s in Cana.

    She has more to say in this story of the annunciation than in any of

the others, and in this one story we get more than a glimpse of the woman she would become in our memory—called on by millions, revered by all—an example of unparalleled obedience and openness to the movement of God in her life.

    It strikes me that, along with being the mother of God (the Orthodox Church uses the word theotokos, which means “God-bearer”), Mary is our example of the best response to the presence of God. We let him in; we show God hospitality in our very being; we allow God to change our lives in ways we cannot even imagine yet.

    The reality for most of us, though, is that in many times and places we have had the chance to welcome God in. Instead, we’ve shut God out because we thought something else was more important. Maybe it was power or wealth. Perhaps God was challenging us to move on a particular path, and we didn’t want to.

    Maybe our question for the week is, what would happen if I do as God asks?

    With four days left before Christmas, let us practice saying yes to God—for in doing this, we honor the mother of us all.

Re: Level 3 Snow Emergency Guidelines for the Diocese of Toledo

On 26 November 2014 the Most Reverend Daniel E. Thomas, Bishop of Toledo, accepted the following text as the official policy of the Diocese of Toledo relating to Level 3 Snow Emergencies. This policy is effective immediately.


Whenever a county/city within the Diocese of Toledo is placed under a Level 3 Snow Emergency, during which all roadways are closed to non-emergency personnel, the Catholic Churches within that geographic region will cancel the scheduled Saturday Vigil, Sunday, or Holy Day Masses. Roman Catholics in that region, therefore, are dispensed from the obligation to attend Mass. If Masses are cancelled, Catholics are encouraged to participate in Holy Mass via television, radio, or Internet, making a spiritual Communion. When Mass is cancelled, all other diocesan, parish, or school events in that geographic region are also cancelled.

PARISH OFFICES WILL BE CLOSED


DECEMBER 24TH—

JANUARY 1ST.


Phone messages will be checked during this time.



WE WISH YOU A MERRY CHRISTMAS AND

A HAPPY NEW YEAR!
