11/30/14 Pastor’s Message

Why Do You Come Through These Doors?

Melody from the heart
Melody from the start
telling me thing’ll be okay
I think that I just might
stay on Melody Road

With Advent 2014, year B of the liturgical year, we officially begin our second century in our beautiful church since its dedication in November 1914. How much pride we all take in our fieldstone church on the Green!

Advent is a time of new beginnings. One of the underlying themes for Advent 2014 is the question we explored last weekend (see banner!). We heard others of all ages answer the question—now it’s your turn. Think about it. Pray about it. Share it with someone you love.

My favorite singer/songwriter Neil Diamond has a new album out, “Melody Road.” The title track is excerpted above. Read it again, but substitute “Advent” for “Melody Road.” the Advent message is one of hope for the coming of Christ at Christmas.

Let’s have Advent from the heart,

Fr. Dennis J. Vincenzo
