"Porque un niño nos ha nacido, un hijo nos ha sido dado” — Isaías 9:5

Queridos hermanos y hermanas en Cristo,

A medida que se acerca la Navidad, los días se vuelven más oscuros.  En Tierra Santa hay guerra e ira.  La cultura en la que vivimos parece cada vez más centrada en las cosas materiales del mundo.  Miramos a nuestro alrededor y vemos a los que están física y espiritualmente hambrientos, sedientos, desnudos, enfermos y encarcelados.  Puede parecer que la oscuridad es opresiva.

"For a child is born to us, a son is given to us . . .” – Isaiah 9:5

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

As Christmas approaches the days grow darker.  In the Holy Land there is war and wrath. The culture in which we live seems increasingly focused on the material things of the world.  We look around and see those who are physically and spiritually hungry, thirsty, naked, ill, and imprisoned.  It can seem as if the darkness is oppressive.

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

On this first weekend of Advent, we hear Jesus in St. Mark’s Gospel encouraging us to, “Be watchful!  Be alert!” With these words, Jesus is not suggesting we prepare for his birth, so what is this emphasis on watchfulness on this First Sunday of Advent?
