NOVEMBER 30, 2014 ~ THE FIRST SUNDAY OF ADVENT____________________
THEME
Reclaiming the Lord’s Day
An old spiritual adage says “Remember your last end, and you
will never sin.” If we remember that God has prepared an
eternity of joy for us, how could we ever turn our backs on
him? What ever our problems and crises, let us renew our
hope that all things will work together for good for those who
love the Lord. Let us watch and pray in order to be ready
when he calls us to eternal joy.

There was a time when Sunday was a special day.
People went to church on Sunday morning. The
afternoon was a great time for a good book, a visit to
friends and neighbors, or a little nap. Families gathered
for Sunday dinner. Children played with their cousins.
Stores, banks, businesses, schools and libraries were
closed. It was unthinkable to do laundry or
housecleaning. Sunday was the Lord’s Day. It was a
special day, a day of celebration, a day of rest. Now
Sunday has become just another day, to shop, to get
caught up on errands and to work.
That’s not how it should be. It’s not how it can be.
Take a step off the speeding treadmill of life and
recapture the job of setting aside one day a week as a
holy day, an oasis in life, a place to encounter the living
God.

The Advent Wreath has its origins in Germany in
the sixteenth century. The wreath - a circle of
evergreens symbolizing God’s eternal love - holds
four candles, three violet and one pink. Violet is the
traditional penitential color of Advent, and the pink candle
symbolizing joy is lit on Gaudete (Joyful) Sunday, the Third
Sunday of the season. As we light the four candles one by one,
we’re reminded of how God’s light has gradually illumined
the world’s darkness through history, culminating in Jesus, the
light of the World and the Sun of Justice.
Don’t take a Vacation from Church - One number you’ll
want to remember when planning a vacation, or on the road, is
1-858-207-6277 or masstimes.org. By using the zip code you
can get the name, address and Mass times of the nearest
Catholic Church.

STEWARDSHIP CORNER
No Children’s Liturgy of the Word
Please remember to use your offertory envelopes. If you do not
use them please call the Rectory Office so that we may
discontinue them thus saving printing and postage costs.
Parish Giving - is a safe, convenient and effective way for
you to support our parish. Our goal is to significantly increase
the use of this important stewardship tool here at St. Isaac’s.
Over the next few weeks we will be asking that you
prayerfully consider enrolling in Parish Giving. Visit the
website www.stisaac.org or call 1-866-307-7140.
Share First, Spend Second – The desire to share with others
flows from a Christian commitment. The key to financial
discipline is to get our sharing with others and our spending on
ourselves into the right order of priority. If we spend first, we
won’t have much left to share. If we share first, we’ll manage
to live on the rest.
WHAT DRAWS PEOPLE INTO THE
CATHOLIC FAITH? - While there are
many different circumstances that lead a
person in the direction of Catholicism, the
simple answer is, “Because God has called
them.”
Most often, God calls to us through the
people closest to us, through our families and friends. Most
who have entered the Church have been influenced by a
Catholic spouse, fiancГ©, or close friend. For many of these
people, a desire to raise their children in the knowledge of
God spurred them to action. What is this if not the action of
the Holy Spirit?
If you, or someone you know, is interested in learning more

610-687-2481 or email [email protected]
