Reflections on Sunday’s Readings: December 8, 2013

Advent WreathThis is the Second Sunday of Advent. Rekindling our baptismal commitment, Advent is time to be on fire with love and care. Advent invites us to rekindle our Baptismal commitment to follow Christ and produce the good fruits of holiness and justice in our lives. In the midst of the busyness of our Christmas preparations, can we carve out some space each day to welcome the presence of Christ our Light within us and to greet that Light in the other who is less fortunate than we are?

Let us be on fire with the wonder of this season, prepare to celebrate Christ’s incarnated Presence among us, and open ourselves to that purifying fire of His Holy Spirit that sets us afire anew for living the Gospel!

Congratulations to Marge McGrath

MargeMarge McGrath is the 2013 recipient of the James E. Flynn Peacemaking Award!

Marge was honored with the special Epiphany award on Saturday night (November 9, 2013) at our annual Flynn Peacemaking Award dinner.

It is obvious to all who know Marge that she has a deep love for people, especially those in need. Caring for the marginalized, the lonely, the homebound, and the grieving is her way of life. She has touched many people’s lives and has been a support and inspiration to many Epiphany parishioners. She certainly exemplifies the core values of Father Flynn, for whom this award is named. She learned these things, probably early in life, but most certainly from Father Flynn whom she knew as our founding pastor.

Vision for a Renewed Church. Come Celebrate a milestone in the history of our Church. On December  4, 1963 the first, and most influential, document of the Second Vatican Council was approved and promulgated. The Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy was a watershed moment for the Catholic Church and for many non-Catholic communities as well. Epiphany has, from its beginning, been committed to “Liturgical expressions that celebrate the Lord's life, death, and resurrection, and that illuminate these mysteries in our lives.” Vibrant liturgy has been our way becoming the body of Christ, strengthened to serve Christ in others.
