Getting Ready for Sunday | 12/16/2018
Updated: Jan 3, 2019
We will gather together again on Sunday, December 16th at 4pm for the Holy Eucharist. This gathering is part of our ongoing preparation in the season of Advent. This third Sunday of Advent is our Rose Sunday for Advent (there's another Rose Sunday in Lent). This is the Advent Sunday in which Joy is a special theme. We are reminded on this Sunday that, in preparing our hearts to receive Jesus, we are preparing our hearts to receive the One who is the fullness of the Father's joy.
"Teach me to seek you,
and when I seek you, show yourself to me;
for I cannot seek you unless you teach me,
or find you unless you show yourself to me.
Let me seek you by desiring you,
and desire you by seeking you.
Let me find you by loving you,
and love you when I find you.
I do not seek to understand so that I can believe,
but I believe so that I may understand.
For this too I believe:
Unless I believe, I shall not understand."
-St. Anselm of Canterbury
