December 1st, it finally feels like the Christmas season! I suppose this statement is a bit on the untrue side; it has felt like Christmas for a week or so now, but the real season, the true reason, was made evident last night at the Advent wreath making class. Then after we got home, I (being the manly man that I am) had to bake cookies for the Parish cookie walk, since the Cajun Princess had to be at work at 6:00 A.M. this morning. It is officially on the books now, I am the ugliest member of the St. Thomas Aquinas womens group. So anyway, today all the wonderful things that signify the Christmas season have hit home, and I feel a little bit happier, a little bit more thankful.

Lk 21:34-36

Jesus said to his disciples:
“Beware that your hearts do not become drowsy
from carousing and drunkenness
and the anxieties of daily life,
and that day catch you by surprise like a trap.
For that day will assault everyone
who lives on the face of the earth.
Be vigilant at all times
and pray that you have the strength
to escape the tribulations that are imminent
and to stand before the Son of Man.”

Glad that the Advent-wreath-making was such a success! It's always great when a parish can have a get-together that combines faith, fun and family like that.
Have a very blessed Advent season. Sounds like you already are!
