My Dear Parishioners,

I was recently reading a letter written about Advent. The letter was written about 1,800 years ago, but I found part of it very insightful and helpful, and I would like to share this with you.

“We do not preach only one coming of Christ, but a second as well, much more glorious than the first. The first coming was marked by patience; the second coming will bring the crown of a divine kingdom.

In general, what relates to our Lord Jesus Christ has two aspects. There is a birth from God before the ages, and a birth from a virgin at the fullness of time. There is a hidden coming, still in the future.

At the first coming Jesus was wrapped in swaddling clothes in a manger. At his second coming he will be clothed in light as in a garment. In the first coming he endured the cross, despising the shame; in the second coming he will be in glory, escorted by an army of angels. We look then beyond the first coming and we await the second. At the first coming we said: Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord. At the second we shall go out with the angels to meet the Lord and cry out in adoration: Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.”

During the season of Advent the Scripture readings we hear at Mass are concerned with these two comings of Jesus. In the first two weeks of Advent, the readings all refer to the future coming of Jesus at the end of the world when he will return again. The final two weeks of Advent refer to the first coming of Jesus, when he came for the first time in the stable of Bethlehem to bring us the message of love, redemption and salvation.

The Advent season, you will notice, reinforces what we repeatedly say during our Mass,

Christ has Died. Christ has Risen.

And Christ will Come again.

I hope this will be a wonderful season of reflection and growth.

Siempre Adelante!

Monsignor Liam Kidney,
Pastor

St. Robert’s Center in Venice is operated by Catholic Charities and it is the recipient of the Food for Families collection held on the first full weekend of every month. It is the only program on the Westside that feeds homeless people on weekends. We are blessed to have long-time volunteers who have consistently delivered this food, Marilyn and Dave Walsh and Lorraine Holt and Phil Murrow. Recently we added two new teams of volunteers, Bill and Carolyn Highberger and Heather and Rick Eyraud. This past Sunday was a full team effort with Rick and Heather, both Corpus Christi School alumni with daughter Zoe, a Corpus Christi first grader and sleeping baby Logan making the delivery. Thank you to all our volunteers and special thanks to all those that regularly make this important program possible with their donations of food.

Homeless Outreach
in Pacific Palisades

Pacific Palisades has experienced an increase in its home-less population over the past several years. In October of 2014 a group of local people formed the

Pacific Palisades Task Force on Homelessness.

This Task Force is made up of community volunteers committed to compassionately addressing the serious issues associated with the homeless. They have decided to
reach out to a group of experts that have experience in empowering homeless people
to rebuild thei r lives. This group is the OPCC and our local task force is hoping to work
with them in trying to respond to this challenge in our community.
We here at Corpus Christ are have committed a fund to support the task force.
