Advent Season Begins November 27th
Advent Season begins on November 27th. The Advent season is a time of preparation that directs our hearts and minds to Christ’s second coming at the end of time and to the anniversary of Our Lord’s birth on Christmas.
Loved by God, “let us love his most discarded children. The Lord is there,” the pope said Nov. 13, celebrating Mass for the World Day of the Poor.
In Italian villages and other places, too, there is a tradition at Christmas to set an extra place at the table “for the Lord who will surely knock on the door in the person of someone who is poor and in need,” the pope said.
As we near Christ’s Birth let us remember to hear the knock on our door and help someone in need. As you set up your Christmas Tree and prepare your special Holiday meals there are also ways that you can celebrate by being present in your Faith. As the Pope says, let us love his most discarded children….there are ways you can help, by volunteering your time, donating to a cause that helps others but most of all walking the walk of a Christian and helping your neighbor.
We ask on this very holiest time of year to ask you to help Catholic Charities Atlanta in continuing to do the good works in helping our neighbors in need.
