Fourth Week of Advent – 2018

[cmsmasters_row data_color=”default” data_bot_style=”default” data_top_style=”default” data_width=”boxed”][cmsmasters_column data_width=”1/1″][cmsmasters_text]



Advent has a twofold character, for it is a time of preparation for the Solemnities of Christmas, in which the First Coming of the Son of God to humanity is remembered, and likewise a time when, by remembrance of this, minds and hearts are led to look forward to Christ’s Second Coming at the end of time. For these two reasons, Advent is a period of devout and expectant delight.

This new year begins Lectionary Cycle C where the Gospel of Luke will be the primary Gospel proclaimed.  Father Fernando and Father Mike will guide us in a weekly focus of Prayer based on the Gospel’s calling for a deeper relationship with our Lord.

The Fourth Week of Advent Prayer focus is Prayer of Welcome

Come to the website daily and find a Scripture citing, Feast Day, Prayer and Action from USCCB and St Bernadette Ministries designed to enrich this holy time of preparation and remembrance.

December 24, 2018 – Monday in Fourth Week of Advent

“Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and they shall name him Emmanuel, which means ‘God is with us.’” (Mt 1:23)

Say the Hail Mary before the Nativity scene and . . .

Know he is near…


[/cmsmasters_text][/cmsmasters_column][cmsmasters_column data_width=”1/3″][cmsmasters_text animation_delay=”0″]

Hail Mary

Hail Mary, full of grace,
the Lord is with you.
Blessed are you among women,
and blessed is the fruit of your womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God,
pray for us sinners,
now and at the hour of our death.
