Waiting with Charity | Homily for the Third Sunday of Advent | Fr. Will Rooney

My soul rejoices in my God. (Is 61:10)

Today the Church places before our eyes the greatest examples of waiting that we have in the Bible. John the Baptist and Mary, the Mother of Jesus. If we want to learn what to do in the waiting, we can look to them. What do they do in the waiting? Both Mary and John teach us how to wait – that we are in fact called to charity while we wait – both also specify that above all else our Charity is to direct others to an encounter with God.

Act of Charity

O Lord God, I love you above all things
and I love my neighbor for your sake
because you are the highest, infinite and perfect
good, worthy of all my love.
In this love I intend to live and die.
