Lord Jesus. Enlighten our minds to the fullness of your spirit And open our hearts to the fullness of your love That we may spend these weeks of preparation Thinking about what your coming among us truly means And the mystery of your love for us Dear Parents/Guardians: December: Life is a constant Advent Season: We are continually waiting to become, to discover, to complete, and to fulfill. Hope, struggle, fear, expectation and fulfillment are all part of our Advent experience. The world is not as just, not as loving, not as whole as we know it can and should be. But, by choosing to live our lives according to the example of Jesus, we will hear God’s call to wait patiently for the emergence of the light of hope. May this Advent season be the time for bringing hope, transformation and fulfillment into the Advent of our lives. 2 Sincerely, G. Consitt E. Plastina Virtue for December is Hope Let us now pray, for the grace and courage to be people of Hope – people who can see and contribute to God’s goodness around us.
