FOUR WEEKS OF ADVENT AT THE SERVANTS OF THE FATHER OF MERCY CHAPEL

Why 4 weeks? Why 4 candles?

From the time of Adam and Eve to the time of the birth of Jesus it was 4,000 years. Each candle represents 1,000 years of the human race waiting in darkness.

What was 4,000 years of human darkness like?

Basically, we were even more stupid than we are now! Egyptians, Persians, Greeks, Romans, Goths slaughtered each other despite attempts by the Philosophers to sensitize and humanize our animal nature.

What about Carbon Dating?

Get over it! There are two creation stories in Genesis. In the first creation life, animals, humans and trees evolved. Later, at around 6,000 years ago, God decides to add his handmade work to the mix - Adam and Eve. Why not? He's God and He can do what He wants. This is especially confusing to Evangelicals and Scientists!

The first prophecy of Jesus - the Messiah occurs after the fall in the Garden of Eden. That's Advent! Waiting 4,000 years for Jesus, Emanuel, "God is With Us" to be born and light up the world.

What is this light?

It's Jesus! Once the Light had come, He has continually burned and the darkness of evil has never overcome Him. Can't say that for Amazon.com. The wife just divorced Jeff and took him for 3 billion dollars. Human institutions rarely escape upheavals, takeovers, splits or survive time - and that's in dog years. Jesus has - consistently His light has reigned in hearts for 2,000 years since His birth. He is a Divine institution that shall never pass away.

Merry Christmas

YOU KNOW WHERE A PERSON COMES FROM BY HIS LIES!

Jesus warned us. Who is listening? The Lord said . . .

"You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the FATHER of lies."

John 8:44

The "Golden Girls"!







Sr. Gloria (photo) welcomed yesterday Servants of the Father of Mercy to St. Catherine of Siena Convent where 25 missionary nuns are living out their golden years. (Just like the "Golden Girls" but + 20!)



Each sister received a holiday craft (photo) handmade in October by our Youth & Family. During their lunchtime, gifting to the sisters was handled by Monica Rocha, her son Adrian and Mary Lantgen. May God bless the sisters and all the Servants that participated making and delivering the gits.

THE REAL MEANING OF CHRISTMAS?


A dad received from his ten-year-old daughter today this Christmas wish list (photo) that he posted on Twitter. Apparently, he is not very happy about being handed the note.  Her list includes a number of expensive items, including a MacBook Air, Gucci Slides and a luxury brand Chanel purse. Other items include a real bunny and $4,000 cash!
