Welcome to St. Christopher Parish

Dear Family,

In our Gospel Reading this weekend, we hear of John the Baptist’s continuing ministry of calling people to change their lives and to search for the promised Messiah. We are told by St. Luke that the people had a great longing to experience the Messiah’s presence in their lives. They even wondered if John was that person based on his forceful message! But John set them straight. He made it clear that he was most certainly not the Messiah. But he would point the way to find the Messiah. This leads to a number of questions for us to contemplate. First, how deeply and strongly am I searching for that encounter with the Messiah in my life? Second, will I recognize Him when I encounter Him? Third, have I made myself ‘god’ by thinking I am the center of everything? These are just some things to pray over during this season of Advent when we are called to re-adjust the focus of our lives and truly seek to encounter Jesus. This Sunday is Gaudete Sunday when our readings call us to Rejoice, for the time of Jesus’ coming is close at hand. So let us rejoice this day and always in the knowledge of God’s infinite love for us!

Praised Be Jesus Christ…Now and Forever!!!
