Second Sunday of Advent - Year A (Audio)   "Blessed are those that can give without remembering and receive without forgetting." Elizabeth Bibesc SUNDAY BIBLE REFLECTIONS  BY DR. SCOTT HAHN SACRAMENT OF RECONCILIATION    Please note: Taking Holy Communion while being in the state of mortal sin is grave sacrilege and is another mortal sin in itself. Receiving Holy Communion indifferently for the sake of just being at Mass without preparing yourself is also a sin. 1 Corinthians 11:27 27Therefore whoever eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner, shall be guilty of the body and the blood of the Lord.

Welcome to our Parish     A parish is one of God's ways of coming into contact with his people. The community is there to help and support one another. The Sacraments allow God to speak to us at key moments of our life. Mass is offered to sustain us through the ups and downs of every day life. Parish life enriches all the community. Through the parish we celebrate important events and find comfort in times of difficulty and sadness. Come and join us.   Jesus, may Your Crucifixion move me to give myself tirelessly to my brothers and sisters. May Your Pierced Heart be a fountain of grace for my journey, and my place of rest when I am weary. Amen. Fr.

Immaculate Conception Novena Nov29 - Dec7 4 December 2016: Second Sunday of Advent - Year A DaIly Bible Readings And Video Gospel Reflection In the Catholic Church, Advent is a period of preparation, extending over four Sundays, before Christmas. The word Advent comes from the Latin advenio, "to come to," and refers to the coming of Christ. This refers, first of all, to our celebration of Christ's birth at Christmas; but second, to the coming of Christ in our lives through grace and the Sacrament of Holy Communion; and finally, to His Second Coming at the end of time.   Our preparations, therefore, should have all three comings in mind. We need to prepare our souls to receive Christ worthily.  Our Parish Prayer We, the people of Seaford Parish strive to be followers of Jesus by being a welcoming and supportive community in which the talents of all can grow and in which we live out our faith through word, sacrament and action. May the holy family St Anne and St Joachim inspire and intercede for us that we may be followers of Jesus. Amen. -----------------------------------------------------------  May God bless you with tears to shed for those who suffer from pain, rejection, persecution, starvation and war, so that you will reach out your hand to comford them and change their pain into joy. Amen. Prayer and Reflection Omnia cum Deo, nihil sine Eo.
