Sunday, November 30, 2008: (First Sunday of Advent)

Jesus said: “My people, these four weeks of Advent are marked by the four candles on the Advent Wreath. The time of waiting marks the time before the Messiah in Me was about to arrive. This is also a time of focus on prayer and repentance similar to your Lenten observance. The first week is similar to your last week because both are preparations in keeping watch when I will return in glory. It is true also that you need to be prepared because you could die any day before I return to the earth. By frequent Confession you can always be prepared in the state of grace in your soul when you will come before Me in your judgment. Rejoice in either case because you have to die and be judged before you can come into heaven.”
