Mass Times

Throughout the month of December . . .

“Advent has a two-fold character, for it is a time of preparation of the Solemnities of Christmas, in which the First Coming of the Son of God to humanity is remembered, and likewise a  time when, by remembrance of this, minds and hearts are led to look forward to Christ’s Second Coming at the end of time.  For these two reasons,  Advent is a period of devout and expectant delight.”  (Universal Norms for the Liturgical Year, 39)
