THE SEASON OF ADVENT - A time of Hope, Joy and Promise

Advent is a time of reflection and promise.  It opens up a new cycle of the Liturgical Year and turns our minds to prepare for the coming of the Lord, not only the birth of christ but his coming at the end of all time.   In this season the prophets offer us a vision of the future and call us to look at our lives and recognise our need for God.  John the Baptist challenges us, pointing to the anointed onle and his promise of a kingdom of justice and peace.  In the final week, Mary, the pregnant mother, is presented a sthe model of discipleship.  this time of prepartion is like no other;  Its tone is one of joyful expectation which springs from our desire to be ready to meet Christ when he comes.  Advent, then, is a time of hope, joy and promise.

  

THE SEASON OF CHRISTMAS a high point of the Church's ligurgical year, it celebrates the act of God becoming human.  God's gracious gift of love, Jesus Christ, is born in Bethlehem for the salvation of the world.  The Christmas festival begins with the feast of the the Nativity of Jesus on December 25 (at the Vigil liturgy) and unfolds with early manifestations of Jesus including  the Feast of the Epiphany.  It concludes  with the Feast of the Baptism of the Lord which announces Christ's earthly mission.
