Our Lady of Victory Washington, DC

Walking with Jesus through Ordinary Time

December 2016

         We concluded the great Jubilee Year of Mercy on the feast of Christ the King, the 20th of November this year. But as our Holy Father, Pope Francis reminds us, “Now is not the time to forget about mercy…. In fact it should always be part of who we are.”

            So we begin a new church year with the season of Advent, the four weeks leading up to the celebration of Christmas. One of my favorite Advent “characters” are the Old Testament prophets –Isaiah, Jeremiah and Ezekiel. We hear them often in the Advent scripture readings at Mass.  They remind us to hope in God’s promises. They remind us that we are blessed when we believe the Lord’s words to us, words promising peace, love and joy.

            I pray that during these weeks of Advent you journey with me and your fellow OLV parishioners to receive Jesus in Word, in Sacrament and in His people, on the great feast of the Incarnation. And Jesus is the light for our path on that journey.

 

 Peace,

                                                           

Father Dave Fitz-Patrick
