Parish Advent theme: EMBRACING THE PEACE


The peace that the world gives is fleeting and unstable. Do not embrace the peace that the world offers that comes from power and wealth. In this season of preparation and anticipation of the Nativity of the Lord at Christmas, embrace the peace that Jesus offers.


For He said, "I have said this to you, so that in me you have peace. In the world you face persecution. But take courage; I have conquered the world."
