Advent: December 1st
First Sunday of Advent
Lord, I love You above all things. Help me to hear Your gentle yet firm voice calling me to follow You. Give me the courage I need to respond to Your gentle invitation with complete abandonment. May this Advent be a time of new beginnings and deeper resolve to follow You. Jesus, I trust in You.
Señor, te amo por encima de todas las cosas. Ayúdame a escuchar tu voz suave pero firme que me llama a seguirte. Dame el coraje que necesito para responder a tu gentil invitación con completo abandono. Que este Adviento sea un tiempo de nuevos comienzos y una resolución más profunda de seguirte. Jesús, confío en ti.
Grant your faithful, we pray, almighty God, the resolve to run forth to meet your Christ with righteous deeds at his coming, so that, gathered at his right hand, they may be worthy to possess the heavenly Kingdom. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.
Otorgue a sus fieles, roguemos, Dios todopoderoso, la resolución de salir corriendo a encontrarse con su Cristo con hechos justos en su venida, para que, reunidos a su diestra, puedan ser dignos de poseer el Reino celestial. A través de nuestro Señor Jesucristo, tu Hijo, que vive y reina contigo en la unidad del Espíritu Santo, un solo Dios, por los siglos de los siglos.

Today in Ordinary Time...
Liturgy of the Hours-"Praying the Breviary"
"Seven times a day I praise you, because your judgments are righteous." PS 119:164
“From ancient times the Church has had the custom of celebrating each day the liturgy of the hours. In this way the Church fulfills the Lord’s precept to pray without ceasing, at once offering its praise to God the Father and interceding for the salvation of the world.”
