From the Desk of the Director
Although 2020 seems like the longest year ever, I still feel like Advent just snuck up on me. 
The joyful preparation, the hope-filled season; I don’t think I’m there yet. 
What I do feel is yearning.
Yearning for certainty. Yearning for peace. Yearning for a Savior.
Most days, just yearning. 
My Advent prayers are not high holy praises. They are more like anguished cries in the wilderness. Very Old Testament-like.
“God”, I usually start, “I don’t need to tell You that things are still going poorly down here.”
I have no profound revelation as of yet on His response. 
So I wait. Yearning. 
Perhaps this is the meaning of Advent so far this year.
I will wait upon the Lord. In His time all will be fulfilled.
Hope you are finding your way in Advent this year as well.
Have a blessed week.

LA Catholic Morning!

Live from the Command Center
Hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving last week!! As I do every year, I eat way more than I should! But, each plate is worth it bc I get to enjoy it with my family, for which I'm EXTREMELY grateful!! I'm also grateful for the best listeners, and donors...YOU!! During this liturgical season of Advent where we prepare for the coming of the Lord, each week I will be preparing a great guest line up on LA Catholic Morning. Speaking of His coming into the world, Carsen Holloway, an author with Public Discourse shares his article, "Christmas and Western Civilization. " Catholic author, Michael Pakaluk returns on Tuesday to talk about his book, Mary's Voice in the Gospel of John. Susan Duffey, wife of Mobile's best eye doctor, Dr Dick Duffey, joins us on Wednesday to give us the latest on the Alabama Tax Credit for Catholic schools. On Thursday, Dr Norman McCrummen will conclude his series on the book, Gift of Faith by Fr Tadeusz Dajczer. Finally, on Friday, we'll hear part 2 of Michele McAoon's interview with Dr Robert Royal on his book, Christopher Columbus and the Crisis in the West. 
God bless you all and don't forget to call your Mama! She loves you!
