THIRD SUNDAY OF ADVENT
A man named John was sent from God.
He came for testimony,* to testify to the light,
so that all might believe through him.
He was not the light,
but came to testify to the light.

PARISH ADVENT RETREAT PRAYER
God, Our Father, we offer you praise and thanksgiving for all the many gifts you have given us through Jesus, Your Son. We thank you especially for the Gift of our parish Advent Retreat.
Loving and gracious God, quiet our minds and hearts, that we may be open to the gift of your truth. Grant that our Advent Retreat may be:
A time of Grace for all,
A time of growth for the young,
A time of refreshment for the old,
A time of renewal for families,
A time of healing for the broken,
A time of joy for the sorrowing,
A time of challenge for the complacent,
A time of forgiveness for the sinner,
A time of strength for the holy,
A time of homecoming for those who have been away.
Grant, most loving God that our Advent Retreat may bring down your richest blessings on each and every member of our parish community.
We pray through the intercession of Mary, Our Mother of Perpetual Help, in the name of Jesus who lives with you and the Holy Spirit forever. Amen.
