Father Sean's Weekly Message

December 2, 2022

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
I pray this email finds you preparing the way!

Advent is a time where we sing out over and over, O Come Emmanuel! We sing this to remind ourselves that we don’t engage the trickery of the evil one alone. God is with us! We really need to be reminded of this. Read over Psalm 139 this week. I also enjoyed this clip from an interview with Pope Francis and America Magazine: The question: “Holy Father… you always seem joyful, happy, even amid crises and troubles. What is it that makes you so joyful, so peaceful and happy in your ministry?”

I would not say that I am happy because I am healthy, or because I eat well, or because I sleep well, or because I pray a great deal. I am happy because I feel happy, God makes me happy. I don’t have anything to blame on the Lord, not even when bad things happen to me. Nothing. Throughout my life, he has always guided me on his path, sometimes in difficult moments, but there is always the assurance that one does not walk alone. I have that assurance. He is always at my side.

 

Pope Francis

"Repent! Prepare the way of the Lord who is with you to heal you, guide you, strengthen you, save you, and open to you the kingdom of God!"

Blessings,
Fr. Sean Weeks
