Second Sunday of Advent
There are people who pass through our life straightening our everything.
And others, who seem decided on making our life impossible. Those who
make life easier, it isn’t because they are not smart or slow. It may be that the
task of facilitating is personally costing them a lot.
It may seem that this isn’t what John is referring to, but to something much
greater: getting the road ready for the arrival of God himself.
But, if we think about it well, we realize that these are the same Prepare
people who make life easier, those who iron out the differences, the road
and facilitate things, those who can bring us closer to Jesus. The for the
gentleness, the good example of sacrificing for others has greater coming
power than the bitterness and difficulties that we sometimes put
of the
on each other. When John says you must get the road ready, he
Lord.
is referring, yes, to great things, such as justice, integrity, to
opening up with God, but first you must start with the smaller
things.
To bring other people to Jesus we must open the path to gentleness and joy.
To allow Jesus to reach us, we must smooth out those harsh aspects in us that
can close the roads: the bitterness, resentments, selfishness, and the lack of
gratitude.
For Reflection
What aspects are in my life that can close the road toward Jesus for me or
others?

For Your Information
This Month’s Liturgy at a
Glance
December is always filled with liturgical
celebrations, both in the official liturgy of
the church as well as in popular religios
ity. In addition, Advent celebrations and
the readings of the Scripture lead us to
grow deeper into the salvation offered by
the coming of Christ into the world.
At the beginning of December we celebrate the novena of Guadalupe, which
ends on the 12th with the Mañanitas,
Mass, and a breakfast celebration. It is
followed by beginning of the Posadas and
all their significance in the opening to
Christ and to hospitality. From the 17th
on, we begin praying the O Antiphons as
an immediate preparation for Christmas.
The Advent wreath accompanies us
throughout this entire season, as a visible
sign of our waiting.
St. Vincent DePaul
St. Vincent DePaul is in need
of your help to fill their
pantry. Next Sunday, Dec
16 we will collect
contributions of nonperishable food ítems or paper products of
any kind. Leave your donation in the
back of Church. We also accept donations
at the Parish Center. Monetary donations
are also gratefully accepted.
Helpers of God’s Most Precious
Infants
This is a weekly pro-life prayer group that
meets every Thursday after the 8:30 a.m.
Mass, in the chapel, to pray for the end of
abortions. We welcome those who would like
to join us.
#ote from the Editor
The readings of the Old Testament, taken
mostly from the prophetic books, offer a
vision of harsh reality, but one of hope
for abundance and joy. It speaks of a time
filled with the consolation of a new world.
The second readings are taken from the
letters and offer a vision of the certainty
of salvation in Christ. In all the readings
taken from the Gospels, one is
encouraged to remain vigilant and to have
a joyful hope in the Christ that comes to
save.
In December we also celebrate several
significant feast days such as St. Francis
Xavier, the patron of missions; St. John of
the cross, the greatest Spanish mystical
author; St. Frances Xavier Cabrini, the
patroness of immigrants. It is a packed
month, in which it is good to emphasize
silence to soften a little the haste and the
frenetic activity of festivities and
preparations.
St. Peregrine Prayer Group
This prayer group meets on Wednesdays
in the chapel at 2.10 p.m., to pray for
those who have cancer or other very
serious health problems. Please join us
for 35 minutes of prayer for your loved
one/s who struggle with cancer.
Cemetery Reminder
Only one arrangement can be placed on
each grave.
December is a very busy month. I ask that
if you have an article that needs to be
entered in the bulletin, December 16,
December 23, and December 30, please
submit your article in writing, as soon as
possible. For more information, call
Donna 815.625.0640.
St. Mary School Gift Cards
If you shop at Kroger Grocery Store and
would like to help out St. Mary’s School,
we have a great way for you to do this.
Stop by the school office and purchase a
Kroger gift card for $5.00. (This $5.00 is
on the card and can be spent at Kroger, so
you are not out any money).
When you shop at Kroger, stop by the
service desk to “load” your card. When
you go through the check out use the card
as a debit card. The card is linked to St.
Mary’s School account and we will
receive 3% of the total amount spent.
Any questions call the school at
815.625.2253. Thank you in advance
for your help.

Danos un amor ardiente y la gracia de la perseverancia final.
