CATHOLIC FAITH AT HOME RESOURCES NOV. 15
ADVENT STARTS NOV. 29!
WE WAIT FOR JESUS TO ARRIVE!!

DURING ADVENT WE WAIT…SOON AND VERY SOON WE ARE GOING TO SEE THE KING!
 
We Christians wait!
We look forward to again celebrating God’s love
that was so great
He sent His only Son down to the world
to save us.

Far from empty,
Advent is a hope-filled time, filled with God’s promises to us.

To help live this time of waiting,
we created an STM Advent booklet at STTM Formation Website
filled with ideas for living Advent while waiting for Christmas to arrive.

Crafted specifically for home
to take advantage of this unusual time during this special time
to celebrate our faith with our family at home
and stay connected
with our wider family at St. Thomas More Church.

WHY THE PEACE OF CHRIST IS THE
REMEDY FOR POLITICAL DISCORD

Politics tends to divide, in families and nations.
This is distressing, with the quest for peace
among political parties seeming out of reach.

What is the remedy for this division?

Pope Pius XI believed it was the peace of Jesus Christ.

As he explained in his encyclical, Ubi Arcano.

"First, and most important of all, for mankind
is the need of spiritual peace.

We do not need a peace
that will consist merely
in acts of external or formal courtesy,

but a peace which will
penetrate the souls of men
and which will unite, heal, and reopen
their hearts to that mutual affection
which is born of brotherly love."
