Homilies: 1st Sunday of Advent, Year C

My homily for the 1st Sunday of Advent (Year C) as preached during the 5.30pm Mass at Sacred Heart Cathedral, Hamilton. The readings were Jeremiah 33:14-16; 1 Thessalonians 3:12 – 4:2; Luke 21:25-28, 34-36.

“The arrival of Advent focuses our attention on the fulfilled promise of God to send the Messiah, a promise once fulfilled and which will be fulfilled again at the ‘end of time’. Until then we are called to be attentive to the ongoing task entrusted to us, and be about the work of the Kingdom.”
