Second Week of Advent


“Repentance is a contract with God for a second life.”

—St. John Climacus

Video Reflection

Journey through the second week of Advent with Fr. John Burns as he helps us look deeper into the theme of week two: preparation. You will learn that preparation is ultimately about penance, an invitation to examine our interior life.

Where is God in the busyness of your life? How can you live, not the priorities of the secular world, but with God as your guide?
