The End of the Liturgical Year

Advent begins tomorrow, and today is the last day of the Liturgical Year. Father Jerry encourages us to bring light into the new year, to be a sign of God’s compassion in our midst, to bring to birth the advent of the Christ of God. He offers, “May we decide that 2021, no matter what happens, will be a year of light over darkness, a year of hope over despair, a year of peace over anger, a year of community over division. We can choose what 2021 will be.”
