John Points to the Coming of Christ and His Kingdom

John Points to the Coming of Christ and His Kingdom

What kind of Messiah did God promise to send to his people and how would he bring God's kingdom to them? The prophet Isaiah foresaw the day when God would raise up a Messianic King long after King David's throne had been overthrown and vacant for centuries. God promised that he would raise up a new king from the stump of Jesse, the father of King David (Isaiah 11:1). This messianic king would rule forever because the Spirit of God would rest upon him and remain with him (Isaiah 11:2).

MARANATHA!  COME LORD JESUS!  ADVENT IS A TIME TO PREPARE FOR THE LORDS COMING< SO LET US PRAY!

The Second Vatican Council decreed: “The whole life of the faithful, hour by hour during the day and night, is a kind of public service, in which the faithful give themselves over to the ministry of love toward God and men, identifying themselves with the action of Christ, who by his life and self-offering sanctified the life of all mankind. The Liturgy of the Hours clearly expresses and effectively strengthens this most profound truth. For this reason, the Hours are recommended to all Christ’s faithful members.”

From the Apostolic Constitution Laudis canticum of Pope Paul VI   The Church has the mission to pray for the world, especially during these confusing and troubling times. All are invited to gather and pray the Divine Office of Morning Prayer during Advent, at 5:30am every weekday, beginning this Monday, 28th of November through to Thursday, 15th of December. Come join us!      

A STEWARDSHIP MOMENT

In today’s Gospel reading John the Baptist warns his listeners: “Repent for the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!” The Church’s yearly Advent herald is a call to repentance. The season of Advent urges us to be open to a conversion of heart. Christian stewards heed this call daily, and take the need for conversion in their lives seriously. As a family of faith, do we hear this call to conversion amidst the massive holiday spending? The increase in credit card debt? The urge to buy things that are not necessary? The incivility on the roadways during the holidays? Are there patterns in our own lives that need to be converted?      

EUCHARISTIC ADORATION OF THE BLESSED SACRAMENT

First Thursday of Every Month.  Come anytime between 5-6:30 pm..  All are Welcome! 

THRIFT SHOP NEW HOURS OF OPERATION

Effective May 2021, the Thrift Store new hours of operation will be every Tuesday from 8 a.m. - 12 noon and on the 2nd & 4th Thursday of the month from 8 a.m. - 12 noon.

DIOCESE OF HONOLULU PRAYER

FOR THE COVID-19 CORONA VIRUS PANDEMIC

[by Bishop Larry Silva)

Dear God of all the living

You sent your Son Jesus to heal us from illness and sin. We turn to his healing power in this time of anxiety over the pandemic of this potentially deadly virus.
St. Damien and St. Marianne Cope dedicated their lives to service of those who had an infectious disease. St. Marianne Cope said, “I am not afraid of any disease,” because she was confident of your power to save. At the same time, she took prudent precautions of hygiene to assure that she and her Sisters would not be infected.
Let us learn from this example to put our trust in you to save us from the ravages of disease and to take prudent measures to prevent its spread. Guide us to know when to isolate ourselves from the possibility of infection, but never let anyone be left without the care and concern of others in the community.
As our Diocese of Honolulu has been dedicated to the Divine Mercy, we pray with confidence, “Jesus, I trust in you.”
