First Sunday of Advent

Advent Moments of Mercy - "God's sending of Jesus is an act of mercy for the world, and so the season of Advent is a perfect time for reflection upon themes of mercy and hope. Pope Francis has called upon all Catholics to be a living sign of God's love for the world. By embracing the call to mercy, we will know the full grace of the season."

The Solemnity of Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe
Monday, November 16, 2015 by Elizabeth Santini
