Mass on Christmas

Go to Mass on the 4th Sunday of Advent and on Christmas.

The 4th Sunday of Advent and Christmas are two separate days, and we are to participate in both by attending two separate Masses. (No “two for one”.)

“As for some spiritual formation in this matter, for those who may be thinking that one Mass should be good enough, I simply invite you to reflect on the reality of the Eucharist as a “gift” instead of being merely a “requirement.” The reason Mass is said to be required is not because we need to prove ourselves to God through “going to Church,” but because the Holy Eucharist is the gift of the eternal life of God – who alone can give this gift. Likewise, our participation in eternal life depends upon our faithfulness to God in this life to the very end - just as our earthly life depends on our continual breathing. No other gift of God gives us what is given in the Eucharist. We are, therefore, “required” to go to Mass because it is what gives us life and is best for us – and to not do so is to deny ourselves the gift of eternal life that only God can give to us.” – Fr. Joel Hastings

Something to think about...questions for this week

Faith is a gift. The more we cultivate our faith and the closer we draw to Him, the more we will want to share about him. When was the last time you shared with a friend or loved one how much your faith in Jesus means to you? Have you become complacent and lost sight of what matters the most?

(Though it varies from person to person, it generally takes no less than 21 days to develop a new habit. It also takes discipline, courage and determination on a daily basis.)

What is God calling you to do?


Discernment groups are meeting now for those men discerning a call to the priesthood, as well as for women discerning a call to the religious life to help answer the question, 'What is God calling me to do?'.
More information can be found by contacting the Diocesan Office for Vocations at 583-2864.
