    as the Lord has forgiven you, so you must forgive. - COLOSSIANS 3:13

    Forgiveness one of the hardest things for people to do. Its amazing how long we can hold

    a grudge or be angry with someone. As we celebrate the feast of the Holy Family, take this

    opportunity to give the gift of forgiveness to someone - maybe someone in your family,

    maybe a friend, maybe a co- worker or neighbor or, maybe yourself. Pick up the phone or

    text someone right now.

    Fourth Sunday of Advent In the first reading, God promises King David that his house and his kingdom will endure forever. It is through Marys Yes I am the handmaid of the Lord. Let it be done to me as you say. that the promise finds fulfillment. See Luke 1:38

  • What is Life Teen? As a Eucharist-centered movement within the Roman Catholic Church, Life Teen leads teenagers and their families into a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ and His Church. With the Blessed Virgin Mary as our intercessor and guide, Life Teen seeks to unleash the fullness of the Sacramental power present within the young Church.

    What are Lifenights? Lifenights are weekly large-group gatherings for high schoolers that immediately follow the Life Teen Mass. There are three basic types of Life Nights: Doctrinal (a.k.a. Catechetical), Issue, and Social. Doctrinal nights follow the semester theme and break open a particular tenant of the faith. Issue nights deal with specific real-world issues that teens deal with (e.g. drinking, gossip, chastity, etc.). These nights help the teens see how their Catholic faith is relevant to every aspect of their lives. Finally, social nights build Christian community and friendships. Lifenights take place every Sunday from 7:30 PM - 9 PM.

    How else are the youth involved? High Schoolers at OLA are welcome to join us for Summit, a lectionary-based discipleship group that meets weekly on Monday nights at 6 PM. We read, reflect on, and plan to implement the following Sundays Gospel into our lives. Teens are also welcome to sign up to join a Discipleship Group (D-Group) that meets weekly to grow in faith and commu-nity. D-Groups last until the teens graduate, causing the teens and Core member with them to become a little family of their own.

    What is the Core team and how do I join? One passionate youth minister is great, but one person can-not minister to an entire youth group. That is where the Core team comes in. Core Members are adults who choose to re-spond to their baptismal call by serving young people. The Life Teen Program relies heavily on the time and talents of adults within the parish community, men and women who truly care about our youth, and who are selfless enough to make sacrifices that ensure that our young people come to know God through the love of Christ and the truth of the Sacraments. One question you have to ask yourself is, Who can serve as a Core Member? If you have that image in your head of what the perfect Core Member looks and acts like, get rid of it. There is no one perfect look. Were looking for servant hearts, hearts that are form-able, not just the perfect-looking or the perfectly formed Core. One can apply for the Core Team by filling out the applica-tion below and having an interview with the youth minister.

    Never forget to invite Mary to be present in your remote preparation for Confession, your immediate preparation for

    Confession. Even ask Mary to enter with you into the Confessional so that you make the best confession in your life.

    Blessed Pope John Paul II called the Marian sanctuariesLourdes, Fatima, GuadalupeSpiritual clinics. How true!

    Lines of penitents await to meet the merciful Jesus in the confessional in these Marian Sanctuaries. Among the many

    beautiful titles of Mary are the following: Mother of Mercy, Mother of Good Counsel, Health of the sick. Behind many

    powerful conversions is of course the grace of God but also the maternal intercession of Mary! -Fr. Ed Broom
