2 CHURCH OF ST. THERESA, BRONX NOVEMBER 30, FRIST SUNDAY OF ADVENT FROM THE PASTOR S DESK : Things are different in church today, something gone, something new. Gone are the green vestments of the Ordinary time, replaced with the purple, the church s color of getting ready, preparing, watching and waiting. And then we have the special wreath, the first of whose candles we light today. Yes, things are different, because this is Advent, this beautiful season of the Church Year, the four weeks which the Church gives us to prepare for the coming of Jesus the Lord. As our retired Pope Benedict says, Today, the church begins the celebration of Advent, which marks the beginning of a new liturgical year and our spiritual preparation for the celebration of Christmas. Let us heed the message in today s Gospel by entering prayerfully into this holy season, so that we may be ready to greet Jesus Christ, who is God with us. Every season of the Church Year is important, but I think Advent bears a special importance and a special beauty. Advent is not a sorrowful time; it is quite the opposite. It is a joyful time, it is the time when we await eagerly what is to come, our celebration of the birth of the Only Son of God. Pope Benedict calls Advent the season of hope, and so it is. You can feel hope in the air during Advent in the readings of the Mass, in the music we sing, a blessed hope, our hope and trust that the Lord who sent His Son as the child of Bethlehem is still sending His love to us His people. Advent reminds us that God never abandons us His People. He is always our Advent Lord, always coming to us, even as He came to shepherds and Wise Men two thousand years ago. Advent is indeed the season of hope, a hope that we have in our hearts, a hope we must be ready to share. How will we observe this Advent? Remember that Advent is not just any four weeks. Advent is a challenge to us, first to appreciate and grow in our own faith during these Advent days and then, secondly, to invite others to come to faith as well. In a very real sense, you are, shall we say, the apostles of Advent. during those four weeks, the Lord is inviting us to go out of our way to help us find the hope and the faith that we have, the hope and the faith which the Lord wants others to have as well. For so many people, the four weeks before Christmas are just a time of commercialism, a time of buying things, a time of decorating before Christmas. And so many people forget the real purpose of Advent. They forget, to use a popular saying, that Jesus is the reason for the season. Our task, given to us by the Pope and even more importantly given to us by the Lord Himself, is to help them find the right Advent, the spiritual Advent, the Advent that involves praying not just buying, the Advent that means decorating our souls with hope and faith, not just decorating our homes with tinsel and lights. I think deep down inside people know that Advent means more than our commercial world wants it to be. People deep down inside know that they need Jesus, they need to prepare for Him. But they need you to bring that understanding forward, to help them to act on it and to make it real in their lives. You are called to be the apostles of Advent, helping others to come to faith or, in some cases, helping others to come back to the faith. That is our best celebration of Advent-to help bring others back to the Lord, back to Church, back to the sacraments. That is the best Christmas gift you can possibly give to someone close to you. Pope Benedict tells us that we must have the right focus during Advent. To use his words, the Season of Advent returns every year to remind us that our life may find its proper orientation, turned to the face of God. The face is not that of a master but of a Father and a Friend. The Lord, our Loving Father, makes us His children, His friends, His beloved. That is the point of Advent. That is the point of Christmas. That is the point of Christian life. May this Advent be a beautiful time for all of us. As we light a new candle each week on our wreath, let the light of Advent burn brighter and brighter in our hearts and our lives. May the light of Advent fill us with faith and hope, as we pray each day, O Come, O Come Emmanuel, O Come Christ the Lord. God bless you all! ST. THERESA PARISH SPORTS PROGRAM IS SPONSORING A NEW COAT DRIVE Father Thomas B.

Father Joseph will conduct a Bible study class for adults on Wednesday evenings in Advent at 7:30PM beginning on December 3rd. This will be an opportunity to grow in your knowledge and love of the Holy Scripture. St. Jerome says, Not to know Scripture is not to know Christ. Plan to be with us for the Bible series. The class will be conducted in the rectory. CONFESSIONS are heard every Saturday from 4:00PM-5:00PM or by appointment in the Rectory.

3 NOVEMBER 30 ST. ANDREW Andrew was St. Peter s brother, and was called with him. As [Jesus] was walking by the sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon who is now called Peter, and his brother Andrew, casting a net into the sea; they were fishermen. He said to them, 'Come after me, and I will make you fishers of men.' At once they left their nets and followed him (Matthew 4:18-20). John the Evangelist presents Andrew as a Disciple of John the Baptist. When Jesus walked by one day, John said, Behold, the Lamb of God. Andrew and another disciple followed Jesus. Jesus turned and saw them following him and said to them, What are you looking for? they said to him, Rabbi (which translated means Teacher), 'where are you staying?' He said to them, come, and you will see. So they went and saw where he was staying, and they stayed with him that day (John 1:38-39a). Little else is said about Andrew in the Gospels. Before the multiplication of the loaves, it was Andrew who spoke up about the boy who had the barley loaves and fishes (see John6:8-9). When the Gentiles went to see Jesus, they came to Philip, but Philip then had recourse to Andrew (see John 12:20-22). Legend has it that Andrew preached the Good News in what is now modern Greece and Turkey and was crucified at Patras. As in the case of all the apostles except Peter and John, the Gospels give us little about the holiness of Andrew. He was an apostle. That is enough. He was called personally by Jesus to proclaim the Good News, to heal with Jesus power and to share his life and death. Holiness today is no different. It is a gift that includes a call to be concerned about the Kingdom, an outgoing attitude that wants nothing more than to share the riches of Christ with all people. The Twelve called together the community of the disciples and said, It is not right for us to neglect the word of God to serve at table. Brothers, select from among you seven reputable men, filled with the Spirit and wisdom, whom we shall appoint to this task, whereas we shall devote ourselves to prayer and to the ministry of the word (Acts 6:P2-4). FIRST SUNDAY OF ADVENT SEASONS OF THE LITURGICAL YEAR ADVENT begins the liturgical year on the four Sundays before Christmas. A season of hope as well as penance, Advent features the writings of the Old Testament prophets in its Mass readings. CHRISTMAS begins with Christmas Day, goes through Epiphany and concludes with the Baptism of the Lord. As a celebration of the Incarnation, the Christmas season also highlights the manifestation of Christ s divinity to the world. LENT is sometimes described as the Church on retreat. A season of fasting, prayer and almsgiving, Lent is a time to reflect on how well we are living out our baptism. THE TRIDUUM or Paschal Triduum, begins with the Mass of the Lord s Supper on Holy Thursday and concludes on Easter Evening. Meaning three days, the Triduum celebrates Easter. EASTER is the season following Easter and concluding on Pentecost Sunday. During this time, the Church reflects on the Mystery of our Redemption through the suffering, death and resurrection of Jesus. ORDINARY TIME IS THE ONLY LITURGICAL SEASON THAT COMES IN TWO SECTIONS. The first begins with the Baptism of the Lord and goes until Ash Wednesday. The second follows Pentecost and concludes with the Feast of Christ the King. The Giving Tree is our parish opportunity for sharing during this Christmas season. The tree will have gift tags hanging on it and will be located at the Altar of St. Joseph. The gifts are collected for the needy. We ask you to remove a gift tag, purchase the item (new items only) and return it UNWRAPPED with the gift tag on it and place it under the tree. All gifts must be in by December 14, GIFT SHOP CHRISTMAS SALE!!! This week and next week our Little Flower Gift Shop in the vestibule of the church is having a Christmas sale of many items, suitable for Christmas giving. Many items have been marked down. Come to see this fine collection of religious articles and spiritual books. REMINDER If you have a Sunday Mass offered for a loved one and are present at the Mass and would like to bring up the Offertory Gifts to the Altar, please let one of the ushers know before the Mass begins.

4 NOVEMBER 30, 2014 THE SYMBOLISM OF THE ADVENT WREATH During the time of Advent, many people have an Advent wreath in their homes. While these decorations are certainly festive and add to the holiday spirit, there is also much symbolism in the wreath that people may not recognize. First, the wreath is always in the form of a circle. Since a circle has no beginning and no end, it is a symbol for God, Who is eternal and without beginning or end. The Advent wreath is always made from evergreens. These branches, as the name indicates, are ever green -- ever alive. They are symbolic of Christ, who died, but who is alive, never to die again. The evergreens branches also symbolize our soul s immortality. Christ came into the world to give us never-ending life. Entwined around the circle of evergreens are red holly berries. They look like large red drops of blood, and symbolize the blood shed by Christ for mankind. They remind us that Christ came into this world to die for us and redeem us. It is through the shedding of His blood that we have eternal life. The wreath has four candles, three violet ones and one rose colored candle. These symbolize the four weeks of the Advent season, our time of preparation for Christmas. Each day, the Liturgy tells us of the Hebrew expectation of the Messiah in the Old Testament reading And the Gospels begin to introduce us to the characters of the Christmas story. At the beginning of Advent a single candle is lit, but each week another candle is lit. As the light from the wreath increases each week as more candles are lit, the wreath reminds us that the birth of the Light of the World is coming closer. So may our souls grow brighter in their love for, and anticipation of, the Christ child as this season of grace continues. The color of the four candles also has significance. The violet candles have a penitential appearance, much as we find violet in the church during the penitential season of Lent. The violet is to remind us that Advent is a season or preparation in which we should be spiritually preparing our souls to receive Christ on Christmas. The single rose colored candle is lit on the third Sunday of Advent, which is called Gaudete Sunday. Gaudete is the Latin word for rejoice, and symbolizes an element of rejoicing in the midst of our penitential preparation, for the joy of Christmas is almost here. The rose color is made by mixing violet with white. It is almost as if the joy we celebrate at Christmas (symbolized by bright white) cannot contain itself during this penitential season (violet) and burst forth a bit into the Advent season. On Christmas, the four candles are replaced with white ones-our time preparation is over and we enter a time of great joy. The Advent wreath should be placed in a prominent place in our church. Many families have a smaller Advent wreath in their homes. This both reminds families of the wreath in their church and serves as a reminder of their link to the parish church. The candles are lit at the main meal of the day, with the new candle lit preferably at the main meal on Sunday, the first day of the new week. Joining around the table for a meal should remind the family of the table of the Lord around which they gather each week to celebrate the Eucharist- -the meal of the Lord that nourishes our soul. So, the next time you see or display an Advent wreath, don t just think of it as a nice decoration. Remember all the symbolism it has for us as it reminds us of the need for spiritual preparation to fully share in the great joy of the birth of Christ, the Son of God Who gave His life for us so that we might have eternal life. A MESSAGE FROM THE SALESIAN FATHERS SALESIAN HIGH SCHOOL MEDICAL MISSION TO HAITI Salesian High School is grateful to announce it will host again its annual mission trip to Fort-Liberte, Haiti this upcoming February, Over the past several years, Salesian has made it a priority to demonstrate the Gospel value of serving those less fortunate in foreign places like Nicaragua and Haiti. This work is highly valued not only by those who receive assistance but also by those who provide it. The school and local communities have been animated to take ownership of this project and many blessings have flowed from the service given. St. Theresa Church has been an enormous blessing for this mission project over the years. Last year we brought down with us 6 students, 2 faculty members, 1 orthopedic surgeon, 2 nurse practitioners and 1 physical therapist. We are able, by God s grace, to bring much needed assistance to various areas including basic food and medical supplies, sporting equipment for the children who attend our schools, and scholarship assistance for 5 nursing students who otherwise had no other means to make their tuition payment. Building on this financial assistance, we are exploring a new opportunity to begin a micro-financing program which provides small loans to students from our various vocational schools who show initiative by submitting viable business proposals they would like to see materialize following graduation. As you can imagine, this endeavor requires significant planning on ur part along with extensive resources. Our goal is to fundraise $2,000 for each boy attending the trip. Any extra money will go toward scholarships and micro-loans for students interested in beginning their own business following graduation. Please know that the first order of help that we need is your prayers. Of course, any financial assistance would be greatly welcomed and appreciated. I m hopeful, with God s grace and a touch of effort, that we can put together an incredible trip which will serve Christ in the poorest of the poor and be a life-changing experience for our boys at Salesian as well as many individuals in the country of Haiti. God bless! The second collection next Sunday will be for the Salesian Mission, in gratitude to the Salesain Fathers for their service to our parish.

5 AN ADVENT PERSON: SERVANT OF GOD DOROTHY DAY Cofounder of the Catholic Worker ( ) Dorothy Day was born in Brooklyn in She spent much of her youth as a journalist and activist dedicated to radical social reform. A turning point in her life came in 1926 while living on Staten Island with a man she deeply loved. Her pregnancy sparked a profound conversion, turning her heart to God. She decided to have her child baptized-a step she followed in 1927, though it meant a painful separation from her daughter s father (he would not consent to marry). She also worried that in joining the Church she was abandoning the cause of the poor. In 1932, after meeting an itinerant French philosopher, Peter Maurin, she found a way to combine her faith and her commitment to justice. Together they launched The Catholic Worker, a paper devoted to propagating the social message of the Gospel. Soon the paper gave way to a movement, combining voluntary poverty, community among the poor, and the practice of the works of mercy. In time the Catholic Worker became a lonely voice for peace and nonviolence. Day and her companions were repeatedly arrested for acts of civil disobedience. All the while her activism was rooted in a disciplined life of prayer and sacrament. By the time of her death on November 29, 1980, Day was widely regarded as the radical conscience of the American Church. In 2002 the Vatican accepted her cause for canonization and she was named a Servant of God. The mystery of the poor is that they are Jesus, and what you do for them you do to Him. WE PRAY FOR THOSE WHO ARE IN THE ARMED FORCES Our parish would like to have a visible reminder of all our parishioners and friends or relatives of our parishioners who are in the Armed Forces.

Help us to recognize the great gift You have given us in Jesus, and may we prepare will for His rebirth in our hearts. On each day of this journey, may we move closer to Jesus, the Prince of Peace, the Light of the World. Shine the light of Your grace upon us that we may follow Him faithfully. In all our preparations for Christmas, may we always remember that Jesus is the reason for this blessed season. Thank You, loving God, for this time of joy and expectation. Walk with us and show us the way today and every day of Advent. Amen.
