Dear School Personnel and Students,
Greetings of joy this Advent Season!
Advent is the time of our preparation to meet the Lord of Lords. Certainly, we desire to offer our best gifts to the Christ Child, but they must be gifts of substance – the gifts of Prayer, Repentance, Forgiveness and Love. We want to adorn Him with our virtues.
Advent is the time of year prescribed by the Holy Church as an opportunity to renewal, for a re-dedication of our lives to Him. Just as He was born to give His life for us, so, too we renew ourselves and are born in the Spirit. In so doing, we offer ourselves to God just as our Lord Jesus Christ offered Himself for us on the Cross.
This Advent, make a change and prepare the best gift possible for the Greatest Guest. Let’s prepare ourselves in order to receive the true joy for this Holy Season. It is a season of joyful expectation!
Happy Advent to one and all!
In our Lord,
M. Teresa E. Examen, O.P.
