Dear Friends in Christ,

The fourth candle of Advent is burning brightly. The celebration of our Lord’s Nativity is at hand. This past week at daily Mass we read from the Book of Zephaniah: “I will leave as a remnant in your midst a people humble and lowly, who shall take refuge in the name of the LORD.” Despite the busyness that consumes us this time of year, there are good folks in our parish who help us all remember what this season is all about:

-parishioners bringing joy through music and fellowship to our Veterans.

-parishioners making cards and buying cookies to take to the inmates at Larch Mountain Correctional facility.

-parishioners responding to the gift requests found on our giving tree and bringing those gifts wrapped in bright paper and prayers.

-parishioners bringing stockings filled with goodies to children in our local shelters.

-parishioners who will spend countless hours cleaning and decorating our church for our beautiful Christmas liturgies.

-parishioners who will welcome us, lead us in song, proclaim God’s Word, share Holy Communion, serve us at the altar, and prepare everything behind the scenes, so that we might worship well at Christmas and throughout the year.

For me, these are Zephaniah’s remnant, the humble and holy whose work and service, often unseen or taken for granted, who are “heralds” for us of the coming of Christ this Christmas.

Take a moment in these final hours before Christmas, to give thanks for the “remnant” in our parish – and perhaps reflect on how the Lord of Lord’s and King of King’s might be inviting you to respond more robustly to this noble calling. May the 4th candle of Advent remind us that the smallest acts of generosity and service become the very light that reflects our Savior’s most loving presence in our midst.

Advent Joy+

Fr. Tom
