We are waiting for our Lord Jesus Christ to be revealed
May God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ send you grace and peace. I never stop thanking God for all the graces you have received through Jesus Christ. I thank him that you have been enriched in so many ways, especially in your teachers and preachers; the witness to Christ has indeed been strong among you so that you will not be without any of the gifts of the Spirit while you are waiting for our Lord Jesus Christ to be revealed; and he will keep you steady and without blame until the last day, the day of our Lord Jesus Christ, because God by calling you has joined you to his Son, Jesus Christ; and God is faithful.

– 1 Corinthians 1:3-9

Thought for the day

Today is the First Sunday of Advent. I give thanks for my community in faith, and the global family of the Church, who walk this path with me. I feel the joy of preparing a way for the Lord together.

Pray with Missio

Today we pray for all those with a vocation to serve God as Priests or Religious Sisters. We pray especially for students at Christ the King Major Seminary in Kenya, many of whom are supported by sponsors in England and Wales. May God bless them so they may always enrich our global family through their witness.
