First Sunday of Advent

12-03-2017On the JourneyFr. Dennis G. Lewandowski

During the past four weeks, I shared some views on the different meanings of the word inspiration. One of the thoughts I shared with you was about the origin of inspiration which comes from two Latin words: "breath-in".

I also referenced the teachings of the Catholic Church about inspiration: God is the author of Sacred Scripture. "The divinely revealed realities, which are contained and presented in the text of Sacred Scripture, have been written down under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit."

Additionally, I shared other meanings of the word inspiration in a social context, and I hope that I was able to motivate you to think about what inspires you.

As we begin the Advent season, allow yourselves to be inspired by God's Word. Let's all be still and listen to the sounds of the season as we move towards Christmas with hope, love, peace and joy in our hearts.
