Gaudete Sunday - Christmas is coming

What does Jesus' coming mean to you this year? We hope you will take 5 minutes to reflect on that life-long question as you listen to this beautiful hymn. For us Contolini it is gratefulness for the gift of another healthy year together. I started writing this short reflection before attending Mass today only to realize it is Gaudete Sunday (Rejoice Sunday). We are called to rejoice and be grateful always; in good times and in not-so-good times. Or as Blessed Solanus Casey said: "Give thanks in advance". It has been a year of growth, change and some challenges for our family. We are grateful for all of it.

May the amazing gift of our God becoming man give you true hope and joy this Christmas season.
