December 2019 Leadership Edition
The first Sunday of December is the first Sunday of the New (Liturgical) Year, the first Sunday of Advent.
Similar to the Lenten Season, this season of Advent is traditionally a season of increased prayer and preparation
for the Feast that comes after. The Advent Season is a time of preparation for us — all humanity — to receive
our greatest guest, the very God through whom we exist. At Christmastime, this same God emerges from the
womb of a virgin; He veils His glory in our frail humanity so that He can redeem our fallen race from within.
What a wondrous and radical gift is the unmerited love extended to us by our God.
