Notices for Week of 18 December 2022

Notices: Advent 4, 18 December 2022

Dear friends,

Unlike Mary, Elizabeth and the children within their wombs, who were all “filled” with the Holy Spirit, Joseph’s experience of God seems to have been different. Foundationally, he heard and trusted in the Word of God and followed it. And he was faithful to God. Yes, he was faithful to God. This Advent let us be encouraged by the faithful witness and example of St.Joseph.
