Advent 2012

Dear people of God:

I am happy to write for you! Advent is a privileged time to grow in hope.

Hope for a better world, not with wars or violence, but a world of justice, peace, hope, love, charity for the poor and holiness.

Hope that Jesus will come once again as He came in history so many years ago to save us.

St. Francis of Assisi celebrated the first Christmas Nativity with his brothers in 1223 at Greccio, Italy. He did in such a way that he wanted for all the people would enjoy eating a banquet on that day.

Today we have elderly, lonely and poor persons in our City… please be generous and share with one or some of them the blessings that God has given you. Do not go to Christmas family dinner without giving life and joy to one of our needy persons. The Lord will give you a hundred more!

Yes! The Lord will tell you: “Come, my child, to the Banquet I have prepared for you!!!!”

Blessed Christmas for you!

Fr Evencio Herrera ofm
