This coming weekend brings us to the First Sunday of Advent, a new year of grace on the Church calendar for 2015.

Here's a good "resolution" for the new year of worship:
I pledge to read and pray over the scriptures 
in preparation for worship on the coming Sunday!
You can begin right here with this weekend's readings and background material on themOne of the best ways to prepare for Mass is to become familiar with the scriptures you will hear.

(Unfortnately, the Sadlier site with hints for helping youngsters prepare to hear the readings seems to be down - I'll update when it's back up!)  And it's back!  Right here!

The first scripture this weekend (Isaiah) reminds us that we are clay in the hands of God, the potter.  The second lesson promises that the grace of God will keep us irreproachable (!) in preparation for the coming of the Day of the Lord.  And in the gospel, Jesus calls us to be watchful and alert for we know not when the thief may come in the night.   

Pottery, preparation and a perpetrator - read all about it!
