“This commemoration teaches us that our Saviour came not only for the benefit of the people of his own time. His goodness is still there for us to share in, but for our part, through faith and the Sacraments, we must lay hold on the grace He won for us and live by it in obedience to Him.”
Prepare for Christmas with Fr Epeli and the wisdom of the saints: this Advent reflection is from a pastoral letter by St Charles Borromeo and appears in the Office of Readings.(4:56)
