STEWARDSHIP REFLECTION: St. Joseph carried out God’s will and embraced his fatherhood as a stewardship. May you allow God to change your plans in order to fulfill his.

LITURGICAL REFLECTION: Because The Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy was the first document of the Second Vatican Council, it is not surprising that its opening paragraph deals with the intentions of the Council in general. It states, “It is the goal of this most sacred Council to impart an ever increasing vigor to the Christian life of the faithful; to make more responsive to the signs of our times those Church observances which are open to adaptation; to nurture whatever can contribute to the unity of all who believe in Christ; and to strengthen those aspects of the Church which can help summon all mankind into her embrace” CSL Number 1. This is why the Church with the guidance of the Holy Spirit undertook the reform and promotion of the liturgy. The Liturgy Documents Volume I. General Introduction, page xii and page 3. 2013, Diocese of AltoonaJohnstown, Liturgy Office, 925 S. Logan Blvd., Hollidaysburg, PA 16648 LITURGICAL REFLECTION: CHRISTMAS: The Church is conscious that it must celebrate the saving work of the divine Bridegroom by devoutly recalling it on certain days throughout the course of the year.

This is Christmas Day and the Church recalls the arrival of the Word Made Flesh dwelling among us. Each year on December 25 the Church commemorates the presence of God’s Son in our midst, born a babe in Bethlehem. As promised by God and foretold by the prophets, this is the long-awaited Messiah who brings us salvation. Darkness is scattered; fear is dissolved. The Light has appeared on earth and hearts are filled with joy. Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy, Number 102. 2013. Diocese of Altoona-Johnstown Liturgy Office, 925 S.

ADVENT BULLETIN INSERTS – THE DIOCESAN PLAN Fourth Sunday of Advent: Professing In Matthew, Joseph is portrayed as one who professes unwavering trust in the angel of the Lord in both word and in deed. Specifically, he follows the command to name the son of Mary Emmanuel and to take Mary into his home. In doing so, he paves the way for the great miracle of “God with us” in the Incarnation of Christ that we eagerly anticipate during these late Advent days.

Professing is the final movement in the diocesan planning process. Both during and at the completion of our
