What I am to be
It is up to me
We are called to Share with Others!
Words of Inspiration
You are the One from Whom
every family derives its origin.
Grant that, in keeping with Your glorious riches
we may be strengthened with power
through the Spirit
for the development of our inner selves.
Help us to develop our natural potentialities
to the full
while at the same time growing in Your likeness
to Your Son Jesus Christ. Amen
New Saint Joseph People's Prayer Book

Have a great week.
The traditional color of Advent is purple or violet which symbolizes the penitential spirit. Religious traditions associated with Advent express all these themes.
A symbol that is often seen during Advent is the wreath. During the season of Advent one candle on the wreath is lit each Sunday until all of the candles, including the fifth candle, are lit on Christmas Day. Each candle represents an aspect of the spiritual preparation for the celebration of the birth of our Lord, Jesus Christ.
1st CANDLE – (purple) THE PROPHECY CANDLE or CANDLE OF HOPE
2nd CANDLE – (purple) THE BETHLEHEM CANDLE or THE CANDLE OF PREPARATION
3rd CANDLE – (pink) THE SHEPHERD CANDLE or THE CANDLE OF JOY
4th CANDLE – (purple) THE ANGEL CANDLE or THE CANDLE OF LOVE
5th CANDLE – (white) “CHRIST CANDLE”
The Gift of Giving
At this time of year we make use of the opportunity once more to show that we care. One very special way we show this is by sharing a little of what we have with others. We are all being asked to give nonperishable items for our annual gift baskets. Let us put an extra smile on someone’s face this Christmas Season. As this year “We are called to Share with Others”
