Fr. Peter West from Priests for Life gave a great homily for the Priests for Life staff today. Most of it is here.
So, what is the point of Advent? Not commercialism, my friends! It's a time to wait with Mary for the birth of Christ!
Today begins the novena to prepare for the feast of the Immaculate Conception of Mary on December 8. This is a great way to join the Blessed Mother in preparing for the birth of her Son.
