A Virtual Advent Retreat

Video 4: Be Generous

We hope you enjoyed last week's third video in the four-part virtual Advent retreat provided by the Rev. Kevin Schneider, S.J. In that video, he reflected on the theme of joy in the readings for the Third Sunday of Advent and talked about the Five Finger Prayer of Pope Francis.

In this fourth video, Father Schneider discusses how we can know who God is through the Rosary, the Daily Examen and the First Principle and Foundation noted in the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola.  

He also makes the point that God became one of us so we could learn about love, and that we can serve Him through sharing our gifts with others.

The other three videos in this series are published below for your review.

Thank you!

Video 3: Be Joyful

We hope you enjoyed last week's second video in the four-part virtual Advent retreat provided by the Rev. Kevin Schneider, S.J. In that video, he reflected on a message of repentance and preparation, and discussed how we can prepare during Advent.

In this third video, he reflects on the readings from the Third Sunday of Advent, the theme of joy in them, and how to incorporate the Five Finger Prayer of Pope Francis in our daily lives.

Please also consider making time for the final video in the series that will be published on Friday, December 24.

Thank you!

Video 2: Be Prepared

We hope you enjoyed last week's first video in the four-part virtual Advent retreat provided by the Rev. Kevin Schneider, S.J. In that video, he discussed how we are encouraged to be vigilant in our preparations for the coming of Christ.

In this second video, he reflects on another passage from the Gospel of Luke in which John the Baptist encourages us with a message of repentance and preparation. Father Schneider then goes on to talk about the ways we can prepare during Advent.
