Extraordinary Jubilee Year of Mercy

Pope Francis hearing Confession

Pope Francis

Second Sunday of Advent

This Tuesday is the beginning of the jubilee year of mercy.  Pope Francis has declared that his coming year, beginning with the Feast of the Immaculate Conception, the universal church will celebrate an extraordinary jubilee year.  Where we will focus on  particular mercies of the church, calling family members back to confession. 

This is a great year to come home . . .

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.

What is the meaning of Advent?
