Some gifts I really need this Christmas

Homily for the First Sunday of Advent
(Scriptures for today's Mass)

At the beginning of the week I was working on an idea for my homily for this Sunday but it never seemed to gel, to come together satisfactorily.  I looked at some old First Sunday of Advent - B homilies and found one I liked and reworked it, intending to preach it.  Indeed, it was the text waiting for me at the ambo at the Saturday 5:00 Mass.  But then during the proclamation of the second scripture, my original idea crystallized in my mind and after proclaiming the gospel, I ignored my prepared, reworked text and preached what I'd been working on earlier in the week.

And that's the homily I went with for the whole weekend - without a text.  So, this week, I have only the audio to offer you.
