December 8


Second Sunday of Advent

  • Light the second candle on your family Advent wreath.

  • Listen to an audio retreat for the the Second Sunday of Advent in English or Spanish led by Bishop Anthony B. Taylor of Little Rock. The retreats, made possible by donations to the Catholic Communication Campaign, are produced by Franciscan Media.

  • In many parishes, the collection for Retired Religious is held today. Consider a donation to the collection and pray for all our retired religious brothers, sisters and priests.  Here are some suggested intercessory prayers:

    For senior Catholic sisters, brothers, and religious order priests, that they may enjoy dignified care in their elder years as they continue to devote their lives to prayer and service. Let us pray to the Lord.
    R/. Lord, hear our prayer.

    For all the elderly in our nation, that they may be treated with respect and compassion and that we as a society may more fully embrace their gifts of wisdom and grace. Let us pray to the Lord.
    R/. Lord, hear our prayer.
