With Hope We Wait for Him to Come Again

Mount of Beatitudes

First Sunday of Advent

We know that in our own individual lives when we are obedient to God, we are blessed.  Are we not? And when we are disobedient to the Commandments of God, we reap destruction.  And our lives begin to spiral downward into all types of desolation.  And that is what produces destruction.

Thirsting for you, O Lord
