First Sunday of Advent (Cycle A)

Originally delivered on December 3, 1989


Readings: Isaiah 2:1-5; Romans 13:11-14; Matthew 24:37-44


Now is the time for us to take action.  In a passionate homily, even more so than usual, Fr. Healy encourages us to be participants and seize the sacred moment to turn our swords into plowshares. Let us put on the armor of light that is Jesus Christ. Now is the hour for us to work for peace, love, and fellowship with our sisters and bothers throughout the world. We are reminded of the martyrs from El Salvador and Nicaragua, including Archbishop Romero  who were slain in the name of peace.  Let the blood of these martyrs propel each of us to be peacemakers in our time.
