We know this Christmas season is different, and today we are reminded of what our Holy Father, Pope Francis, said on the first Sunday of Advent in 2013. It was valuable back then, and it’s valuable today. May you encounter Jesus on this journey of life and pray for forgiveness and grace, setting the tone for this month.

On this feast day of Saint Francis Xavier, we look to his spirit of generosity and how he dedicated the majority of his life to minister to the sick and poor. He joyfully gave his time in service of the Lord, caring for those in need. This Christmas season, let us remember to cherish and feed into the lives of others the way Francis Xavier did.

As we near the end of the first week of December and advent season, we are hopeful that this year WILL be different and we will discover Christ in a deeper and more meaningful way. As it says in Romans 12:12, “Rejoice in hope, endure in affliction, persevere in prayer.”
