Fourth Sunday in Advent, Dec. 18, 2011
Fr. Elvio Baldeon Gospel: Luke 1:26-38 “Let it be to me according to your word.”
Homily summary: On this last Sunday in Advent, we have two characters in the readings. One is David the King. He conquered many lands, and was successful as a king. He wanted to build a home, a building, for God, but He refused. God saw his pride and said it was I who gave you everything.

The other character, Mary, had a humble heart. She did not have pride. God is calling us to be his mother, in a spiritual sense. He said, “My mother and brothers and sisters are those who do my will.” This Christmas, let us take on Mary’s thinking: “Let it be done according to his will.” God presents his mother as an example for us.
