First Sunday of Advent

November 28, 2011


Advent is understood by many as a season of preparation, but it is actually much more than that.

It is actually we celebrate as an in between time – a time between promise and fulfillment. The tension that results gives rise to many questions about God’s promises.

Not too long ago, several students surfaced these difficult questions about God and about doubt. We decided to use Advent to give us permission to ask these questions and ritualize the doubts that we have.  Due to the nature of this very different style Mass, there are two homilies for this Sunday:  the first is a normal Sunday Mass, but the second is highly interactive focused on doubt and bringing light to the darkness.
