Prepare for Christmas during Advent by getting to know Pope Francis’ encyclical “Laudato Si” Care for our common home. Meetings will be on a Sunday afternoon at 4pm until 5pm They will be in the sacristy at St Peter’s and will start On Sunday December 8th.
St Oscar Romero observes Praying and expecting everything to come from God and not doing anything yourself is not praying. This is laziness, this is alienation. This is passivity, conformity. This is not the time , dear brothers and sisters to say: it is God’s will. Many things happen that are not God’s will. When people can contribute something of themselves to improve the situation and ask God for the courage to do so, then there is prayer.
