1st Sunday of Advent

I wait for the Lord, my soul waits, and in his word, I hope. (Psalm 130:5)

Lord encourage us to share our Advent with those around us – the lonely, the last and the least.


We need always to have our spiritual ears and eyes open to detect the coming of the Lord. Lord, send us your Holy Spirit to keep your disciples attuned to your presence.

The first candle of Advent is purple and stands for “Hope”. It is sometimes called the Prophet’s Candle in remembrance of the prophets, especially Isaiah, who foretold the birth of Christ.

Help us to be a community who radiate the light of hope into the lives of others.
