At this time of the year we are very conscious of our family
as we make preparations for Christmas. Today’s gospel
warns us not to be consumed by all the consumer activity.
This Advent, appreciate the gift of people in your life. The
best gift this season might be your appreciation of others.

     Oración para el Adviento
                Dios de la Vida,
   nos regocijamos en la promesa de tu venida.
 Has enviado a tu Hijo, nacido en Belén. Él es el
             Príncipe de la Paz, y
     en cuyo Nombre toda opresión cesará.
        Que aceptemos su venida cada día
  y nos preparemos para su venida al final de los
                   tiempos.
    Que construyamos una cultura que lo acoja
 al acoger a todos los niños, nacidos y por nacer.
Te lo pedimos por el mismo Cristo nuestro Señor.
                     Amen.
