A Season for Hope

Date: December 2, 2012Liturgical Day: The First Sunday of Advent (Year C)

stand up — raise your heads the kingdom of God is near hope for the future

Summary: The difference between many recent predictions of the world's end, and Jesus' promise to return at the end of time, is this: where they depend on fear to convince others to believe that they are right, Jesus offers hope for an eternity with God. Advent, the season of hope, is a time to ground ourselves in this promise.
