Father's Weekly Reflection
4th SUNDAY OF ADVENT
Brothers and sisters in Christ, we begin the final week of Advent. These past four weeks we have been preparing to celebrate the long-awaited celebration of Christmas.
The evangelist Saint Luke recounts the meeting between Mary and her cousin Elizabeth, who is also waiting for the birth of her son, John the Baptist. When Mary visits Elizabeth, the old woman responds, “Who am I that the mother of my Lord comes to me?” With this reception of Mary, the Church shares the same sentiment as Elizabeth who rejoices because the Son of the Living God, Jesus, is in the maternal womb of Mary, and later in the womb of the Church.
Dear parishioners, in our Mother Mary, we see the model for every believer to follow. The Virgin Mary obeys and humbly responds to the Angel’s invitation that “she is the slave of the Lord. The Church follows in the footsteps of Mary, preparing with a humble, obedient heart, and always ready to obey her child who arrives in the innocence of a child.
Let us ask Mary Most Holy that the gift of her Son remains forever in the hearts of each one of us and that we may imitate the Mother of the Savior in obedience, humility, and joy.
Pastor. Adrián Vázquez
