First Week of Advent

This week we light the first candle of Advent, as we begin our time of waiting for the Lord.  Waiting for the Lord means a time of preparing ourselves for the presence of the Lord.  During this season, we wait – prepare – for the Second Coming of Christ, at our death and at the end of time.  We also wait – prepare – for the rebirth of Christ in our hearts during the Christmas season.

It is not that Christ is not among us now.  We know that Christ is present among us always.  Our preparation recognizes that we are not always present to Christ.  We want to be especially attuned to Christ’s presence during this season of anticipation of Christ’s Second Coming.  And so we must prepare!

Growing In Faith Together (G.I.F.T.)

St. Anthony's New Program for

All Parishioners of St. Anthony's!

This year, we are focusing on our Profession of Faith, our Nicene Creed, which we pray during every Mass on Sunday. 

In September, we engaged in learning why we have a Creed: 
What is faith?  Who is God? and Why do we believe in the Trinity?

In October, in preparation for the
Feasts of All Saints Day and All Souls Day,
we studied the last part of our Creed:  

I confess one Baptism for the forgiveness of sins,
and I look forward to the resurrection of the dead,
and the life of the world to come.

In November. we engaged in learning about the first part of the center of our Creed: Jesus!

I believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ,
           
the Only Begotten Son of God,
            born of the Father before all ages,
 
 God from God, Light from Light, 
t
rue God from true God,
begotten, not made,

consubstantial with the Father;
through him all things were made.

For us men and for our salvation
he came down from heaven...

What do each of those titles of Jesus mean?  What is Jesus' relationship with the Father?  Why do we believe that Jesus was a part of creation?

If this section begins with "I" believe, why does our Creed then refer to "us" and "our" when speaking of "salvation"?

When we speak of Jesus coming "down from heaven", we do not speak of direction ("up", "down"), but of distance in knowing God...

On Sunday, December 15th, our session will help us connect with the Holy Spirit, beginning where we left off with our Creed in November:

and by the Holy Spirit was incarnate of the Virgin Mary,
and became man.

>>>

I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the Lord, and giver of Life,
who proceeds from the Father and the Son,
who, with the Father and the Son,
is adored and glorified,
 who has spoken through the prophets.
