The PYC and the CHURCH will support you in any case but not when you get yourself involve in ELECTION VIOLENCE.
Let's shine with the light of CHRIST tomorrow .
FELLOW YOUTH becareful , if any violence should arise at any polling station , all those standing there ideal will be arrested as SUSPECTS and it will take some days for you to be release after investigations and NON of us ( EXECUTIVES) will pay a visit or assist in any way.
A WORD TO THE WISE IS.............
A King had a male servant who, in all
circumstances always said to him;My king, do not be discouraged because everything God does is perfect,no mistakes. One day, they went hunting and a wild animal attacked the king,the servant managed to kill the animal but
couldn't prevent his majesty from losing a finger. Furious and without showing gratitude,the King said;if God was good,I would
not have been attacked and lost one finger.
The servant replied;Despite all these things,I can only tell you that God is good and everything He does is perfect,He is never wrong.Outraged by the response,the king ordered the arrest of his servant. Later, he left for another hunt and was captured by savages who use human beings for
In the altar, the savages found out that the king didn't had one finger in place, he was released because he was considered not"complete"to be offered to the gods.
On his return to the palace, he authorized the release of his servant and said; My friend, God was really good to me. I was almost killed but for lack of a single finger I was let go.
But I have a question; If God is so good, why did He allow me to put you in jail?. He replied; My king, if I had gone with you,
I would have been sacrificed because
I have no missing finger. Everything God does is perfect, He is never wrong.
Often we complain about life,and the negative things that happen to us, forgetting that nothing is random, and that everything has a purpose.
1st SUNDAY OF ADVENT
Advent is a season we keep vigil for the coming of the Lord.Christian life is a life of vigil.How my life is going to end is matter of personal experience .Death can make our life a total fiasco ,a deadly meaningless thing.But our faith is CHRIST makes it something beautiful.All vanities of life( Eccl 1:1) transformed into glorious eternity .Jesus earthly life is a shining example for our mortal life.We are blessed in our baggage of waste we call life by his graceful presence .KEEP VIGIL FOR THE LORD ,just as the reference to the PSALM is "PRAYING AT ALL TIMES FOR THE STRENGTH TO SURVIVE ALL THAT IS GOING TO HAPPEAN" and the responsorial PSALM "TO YOU, O LORD I LIFT UP MY SOUL"
Advent: A Time of Preparation:
In the Catholic Church, Advent is a period of preparation, extending over four Sundays, before Christmas. (For more details, see "When Does Advent Start?") The word Advent comes from the Latin advenio, "to come to," and refers to the coming of Christ. This refers, first of all, to our celebration of Christ's birth at Christmas; but second, to the coming of Christ in our lives through grace and the Sacrament of Holy Communion; and finally, to His Second Coming at the end of time.
Our preparations, therefore, should have all three comings in mind. We need to prepare our souls to receive Christ worthily.
Advent is a time of preparation for the coming of Christ at Christmas. Traditionally, it has been celebrated with prayer and fasting, which is why it is known as the "little Lent." Advent is also the start of the liturgical year in the Roman Catholic Church.
As the Catholic Encyclopedia notes, "Advent is a period beginning with the Sunday nearest to the feast of St. Andrew the Apostle (30 November) and embracing four Sundays." That means that the First Sunday of Advent can fall as early as November 27 or as late as December 3.
First We Fast, Then We Feast:
That's why Advent has traditionally been known as a "little Lent." As in Lent, Advent should be marked by increased prayer, fasting, and good works. While the Western Church no longer has a set requirement for fasting during Advent, the Eastern Church, both Catholic and Orthodox, continues to observe what is known as Philip's Fast, from November 15 until Christmas.
Traditionally, all great feasts have been preceded by a time of fasting, which makes the feast itself more joyful. Sadly, Advent today has supplanted by "the Christmas shopping season," so that by Christmas Day, many people no longer enjoy the feast.
The Symbols of Advent:
In its symbolism, the Church continues to stress the penitential and preparatory nature of Advent. As during Lent, priests wear purple vestments, and the Gloria ("Glory to God") is omitted during Mass. The only exception is on the Third Sunday of Advent, known as Gaudete Sunday, when priests can wear rose-colored vestments. As on Laetare Sunday during Lent, this exception is designed to encourage us to continue our prayer and fasting, because we can see that Advent is more than halfway over.
The Advent Wreath:
Perhaps the best-known of all Advent symbols is the Advent wreath, a custom which originated among German Lutherans but was soon adopted by Catholics. Consisting of four candles (three purple and one pink) arranged in a circle with evergreen boughs (and often a fifth, white candle in the center), the Advent wreath corresponds to the four Sundays of Advent. The purple candles represent the penitential nature of the season, while the pink candle calls to mind the respite of Gaudete Sunday. (The white candle, when used, represents Christmas.)
We can better enjoy Christmas—all 12 days of it, from Christmas Day to Epiphany—if we revive Advent as a period of preparation. Abstaining from meat on Fridays, or not eating at all between meals, is a good way to revive the Advent fast. (Not eating Christmas cookies or listening to Christmas music before Christmas is another.) We can incorporate such customs as the Advent wreath, the Saint Andrew Christmas Novena, and the Jesse Tree into our daily ritual, and we can set some time aside for special scripture readings for Advent, which remind us of the threefold coming of Christ.
Holding off on putting up the Christmas tree and other decorations is another way to remind ourselves that the feast is not here yet. Traditionally, such decorations were put up on Christmas Eve, but they would not be taken down until after Epiphany, in order to celebrate the Christmas season to its fullest.
