The Meaning of Advent

The Meaning of Advent

Advent means “coming” and we prepare over four Sundays to celebrate the first coming of Jesus at Christmas and his continual comings to us through the sacraments and to be ready for his Second Coming at the end of time. Advent is also known as a “little Lent” because we prepare, as in Lent, in the same manner by prayer, fasting and almsgiving.

Jesus said, “If you give what you have as alms, all will be wiped clean for you.” (Luke 11:41). I invite you to be a beneficiary of the promise of Jesus “to be wiped clean” by giving alms for our Apostolates.

“Be not sparing of freewill gifts. With each contribution show a cheerful countenance, and pay your tithes in a spirit of joy. Give to the Most High as He has given to you, generously, according to your means. For the LORD is one who always repays, and He will give back to you sevenfold.” (Sirach 35:7-10)
