First Sunday of Advent Thoughts

Hope and pray that you've had a beautiful and blessed Sunday, everyone!

While our daughter Tintin and her Aunt Rose attended a Christian church in neighboring city where Tintin plays piano there every other Sunday, Freny and I participated in today's Mass at St. Paul's. We did distribute to our fellow parishioners the consecrated wine, the Blood of Christ. Reverend. Fr. David, our pastor of four cluster parishes, was our celebrant and homilist. Words that resonate in me from his homily: "Don't let your sins separate you from God." Overall, the first Sunday of Advent Mass was solemn and inspiring.

This Sunday thoughts came upon me while on the road home from D-ville with wife Freny (driving our van), after bringing our daughter Tintin back to her apartment this late afternoon...

Jesus our Brother
we are preparing ourselves
we're waiting for You.

This Advent season
we're happy to welcome You
Jesus the reason.

I have to clear up
my mind is full of clutter
before Jesus comes.
