“Stay awake!

As the first word of Advent, Christ tells us, “Stay awake! You must be prepared.” The unprepared people “in the days of Noah” were distracted by their “eating and drinking,” oblivious to the imminent flood. In what does Avent preparation consists? Putting on the Lord Jesus Christ through faith. “Encountering Christ, letting [ourselves] be caught up in and guided by his love, enlarges the horizons of existence, gives it a firm hope which will not disappoint. Faith is no refuge for the fainthearted, but something which enhances our lives. It makes us aware of a magnificent calling, the vocation of love . . . . Faith is a lamp which guides our steps in the night and suffices for the journey” (Lumen Fidei, 53). “Let us walk in the light of the Lord!”

ADVENT PRAYER
by: Saint Elizabeth of the Trinity:

O Consuming Fire, Spirit of Love, come upon me
& create in my soul a kind of incarnation of the Word,
that I may be another humanity for him in which he can renew his whole mystery.

 

 

Comment by Fr. Sebastian White

It is my firm conviction that if we offer that prayer with sincerity we will have nothing to fear when we stand before our Lord at the end of our pilgrimage, for it will be Jesus meeting Jesus.

Reverend Thomas Joseph
St. Pius X Church
2821 Lowrey Avenue
Honolulu, HI 96822-1644

Dear Father Joseph,


Peace be with you!

In light of your request for a three-month medical leave from all duties at St. Pius X Parish so that you can fully engage in and recover from your cancer treatment, I hereby grant you such leave, effective November l , 2019 through January 31, 2020. Of course, if you need more time to recuperate, we will by all means see that you have it. Please be assured of my prayers for you that your recovery will be speedy and complete.

At your request, you may continue to reside at St. Pius X Rectory while you are on the medical leave. You have assured me that you will have people who can care for you there. If you do need any other assistance, however, please do not hesitate to ask.

I will be assigning Father Rico Bernadez as the Temporary Administrator during the time of your leave.

He will continue residing at the Dever House, which, as you know, is located very close to St. Pius X. While he will have full responsibility for the pastoral care of the parish, I will caution him not to make any major decisions that would affect the parish in the long term without consulting you.

Sincerely yours in Christ,
