Life Is an Advent Season

"Life is a constant Advent season: we are continually waiting to become, to discover, to complete, to fulfill. Hope, struggle, fear, expectation and fulfillment are all part of our Advent experience.

"The world is not as just, not as loving, not as whole as we know it can and should be. But the coming of Christ and his presence among us—as one of us—give us reason to live in hope: that light will shatter the darkness, that we can be liberated from our fears and prejudices, that we are never alone or abandoned.

"May this Advent season be a time for bringing hope, transformation and fulfillment into the Advent of our lives." - CONNECTIONS, 11-28-93 -

Take Time to be Aware

"Take time to be aware that in the very midst of our busy preparations for the celebration of Christ’s birth in ancient Bethlehem, Christ is reborn in the Bethlehems of our homes and daily lives. Take time, slow down, be still, be awake to the Divine Mystery that looks so common and so ordinary yet is wondrously present.

"An old abbot was fond of saying, ‘The devil is always the most active on the highest feast days.’

"The supreme trick of Old Scratch is to have us so busy decorating, preparing food, practicing music and cleaning in preparation for the feast of Christmas that we actually miss the coming of Christ. Hurt feelings, anger, impatience, injured egos—the list of clouds that busyness creates to blind us to the birth can be long, but it is familiar to us all." -Edward Hays, A Pilgrim’s Almanac, p. 196 -

Our Brother in Christ

Though today some of us could not attend to today’s mass because of their exam, it is the last mass for the semester and we are celebrating the 32nd Sunday of the week in ordinary time. Today Father Jude’s homily is about gift in each of us, he said that each of every one of us has our own special talent and ability that the lord has given us and it is the greatest gift. So Father in his homily today urges us to see our own ability and use it wisely. Today is also a special day to our brother in Christ Raymond @ Bulet because today is his 21st birthday.” HAPPY BIRTHDAY Bullet.“ We had a kind of surprise birthday “dinner” to celebrate the day with 3 others born in the month of November, Lendee, Lohcin and Floria. Happy birthday you guys.

Last Gathering

Today is our NUCS last gathering of the year and to be said the best gathering of the semester too. That night might be the most memorable night especially to all the outgoing seniors because tonight will also be their last Thursday night gathering with all the other members. As usually done during our gathering, we sing praise and worship songs and read today’s readings with little sharing from the members but tonight as special as it is we celebrate the night to spend and enjoy that moment especially for and with the outgoing seniors so tonight everyone brought light refreshment A.K.A. snacks and soft drinks we even moved a little bit from our usual spot for this special night. Everyone is enjoying their time tonight because next week our exam month will begin part of just spending that precious moment for it will never come again after the outgoing seniors graduated.
