Gospel and Homily

First Sunday of Advent (B)

Mark 13: 33-37

Most of us don’t like waiting.

The kind of classic expression of this is that we don’t like to sit in traffic jams, or queue, or wait for test results.  That can be painful and stressful.  We are all collectively waiting for the vaccine for COVID and that is really frustrating!

Personally, I can’t wait for retirement!  I’m looking forward to that for sure.

As Christians we are called to wait – to wait for the Second Coming of Christ.  Some of you are already waiting for this homily to end.  Hopefully it will end before Jesus returns.

Supporting an authentic, Catholic lifestyle


Pulling together the best in Catholic movies, children’s programming, audio dramas and books, we provide a trusted and engaging entertainment alternative in support of a Catholic lifestyle.


Our Bible studies, sacramental prep materials, documentaries, books and audio talks from leading Catholic experts will help you grow in understanding your faith.


Encountering and sharing our content has never been easier. Share the platform with your parishioners, send a subscription to a friend and help them engage via their mobile, tablet, or connected TV device.

We are encouraging you to watch the series called “The Search”.  We are moving into week two, but don’t worry you can watch the first session whenever you want.  What is the search?  Well FORMED say this:

“The Search leads people to the deepest questions of the human heart, exploring the meaning and purpose of life with a visually stunning and intellectually stimulating approach. As an evangelization series hosted by Chris Stefanick, The Search guides viewers through a crescendo of seven episodes examining life and death, sorrow and happiness, and science and faith. Astrophysicists, psychologists, astronauts, neuroscientists, professors, athletes, artists, and the beauty of the cosmos all point to one big conclusion: Jesus Christ and the Catholic Church. Each episode averages 30 minutes in length.”

Don’t do The Search alone!

The Search is most powerfully experienced when discussed with others.  We would therefore like to invite you to join one of our LIFE Groups.  These groups are made up of various people who

just come together on-line, to discuss what they have experienced.  LIFE Groups happen at all sorts of times during the week, so you are bound to find a group that suits your diary.Or perhaps you already have a group that you could meet with, maybe a group of friends, neighbours or work colleagues.  Why don’t you register your group with us and we will make sure that you get all the materials that you need for a discussion?  Just visit our LIFE GROUPS page to register as an individual or a group. You can do so by clicking here.The Search and LIFE GROUPS, might just be the thing that you are looking for in life just now!
