A message from Fr. Godfrey
An excerpt from
POPE FRANCIS: REJOICE AND BE GLAD
CHAPTER FIVE: SPIRITUAL COMBAT, VIGILANCE AND DISCERNMENT
172. Nonetheless, it is possible that, even in prayer itself, we could refuse to let ourselves be confronted by the freedom of the Spirit, who acts as he wills. We must remember that prayerful discernment must be born of a readiness to listen: to the Lord and to others, and to reality itself, which always challenges us in new ways. Only if we are prepared to listen, do we have the freedom to set aside our own partial or insufficient ideas, our usual habits and ways of seeing things. In this way, we become truly open to accepting a call that can shatter our security, but lead us to a better life. It is not enough that everything be calm and peaceful. God may be offering us something more, but in our comfortable inadvertence, we do not recognize it.

Why (and How) to Return to Sunday Mass and Confession
A Nativity is a Multipurpose Instrument of Faith
Every Christian is challenged, here and now, to be actively engaged in evangelization ; indeed, anyone who has truly experienced God's saving love does not need much time or lengthy training to go out and proclaim that love.
Pope Francis, Evangelii Gaudium
Let's approach Christmas with an expectant hush, rather than a last-minute rush.
