Homilies: Third Sunday of Advent, Year C

My homily for the Third Sunday of Advent, Year C, preached during the live-streamed 9.30am Mass from Sacred Heart Cathedral, Hamilton. During the Mass, we celebrated Confirmation with Amelia and Giovanni, and immediately after Mass, we celebrated Baptism with two families.

The readings proclaimed were Zephaniah 3:14-18; Philippians 4:4-7; Luke 3:10-18.

“After their baptism for repentance for sins, John’s disciples asked ‘What must we do?’ The answer is clear: live as if it means something, and don’t go back to old habits, old ways of living. Live as if what you have experienced means something. We are called to do the same thing: having been baptised, we are called to live differently, to live as Jesus would have us live, always open to God’s grace when we stumble.”
