St Therese, Mangere East Parish
Greetings! Welcome to the first Sunday of Advent. On this first Sunday of Advent we begin a new liturgical year – year of Matthew’s gospel. As we begin a new year of the church’s life, we receive a clarion call. We are to stay awake, be prepared, to be ready to deal with all that life may throw at us, carrying God’s message of justice and peace to all.
St Paul is quite clear. What we are experiencing is the change from darkness to light, and so we are called to live lives that reflect that change. Our staying awake, our preparation for the coming of our master, means living decent lives, without licentiousness, wrangling or jealousy. This is how we prepare ourselves for the great transformation of war into peace, this is how we face up to the unknown. By word and action we try to walk already in the light of the Lord.
Thank you to Fr Albertus Suprapto
