Divine Saviour & St. Ann
Laudate pueri Dominum laudate nomen Domini - Ps. 112.1
29 November 2018
First Sunday of Advent
We the Church enter into Advent and the new liturgical year with a call for a watchful confidence. Our readings were originally addressed to communities undergoing great loss and confusion. Jeremiah speaks confidently of God fulfilling the ancient promises to Israel, even during a time of foreign invasion. Paul speaks of God leading the Church into holiness, while the community longs for the coming of Jesus. In the Gospel passage from Luke, Jesus speaks of powerful signs and of great confusion to come, but emphasizes that we may look forward knowing that God brings not cause for despair, but hope. We celebrate Advent to remind each other of Gods faithfulness. We are to be watchful, to see how God is stirring up our world. God both disturbs our pride and complacency, and brings us healing and justice. We prepare ourselves to welcome Jesus, confident that God indeed fulfills all these divine promises.

The Power of Prayer
As Catholics, prayer is essential to our everyday life - prayers of praise, prayers of thanks, and prayers of petition. We recognize God as the source of all we are and all we will be. It is by uniting our hearts and minds with God through prayer that we can carry out our work for the good of His Kingdom. Just as we hear in 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18, "Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus."
As the message of Called to Renew continues to be shared throughout the Archdiocese, we ask that you continue to keep the success of the campaign in your prayers. A campaign prayer has been created for the Called to Renew effort:
God of love and God of life,
We thank You for your blessings.
Especially the gift of life and the gift of faith.
Father, give us wisdom and courage
and guide us as we call Your family here in Los Angeles to renewal.
Help us to raise up a new generation of missionary disciples
to proclaim the good news of Your mercy
and to serve our brothers and sisters in need.
Fill us with Your Spirit,
that we might call Your sons and daughters
to be priests and deacons and consecrated religious to dedicate their lives to You;
that we might call Your Church
to bring healing to the sick and love to the poor and those in prison;
that we might call our young people
to seek Your beautiful plan for their lives.
Father, give us all new excitement to follow Jesus
and to serve You with all our hearts and all our strength.
Increase our faith and give us confidence to offer You
our gifts, our talents and our treasure —
that we might find our true treasure in heaven with You.
Trusting in the tender love of our Blessed Mother, Queen of the Angels,
we ask all this in the name of Your Son, Jesus Christ. Amen.
Together in Mission
Thank you for the love and support you show to your parish
