month of December is dedicated to the Immaculate Conception, which is
celebrated on December 8. The first 24 days of December fall during the
liturgical season known as Advent and are represented by the liturgical
color purple. The remaining days of December mark the beginning of the
Christmas season. The liturgical color changes to white or gold — a
symbol of joy, purity and innocence.
liturgy of Advent focuses on remembering Christ's first coming at
Bethlehem which then directs our mind to Christ's Second Coming at the
end of time. The readings focus on the people of the Old Testament
awaiting the Messiah, John the Baptist, heralding the way for Christ
and the Blessed Virgin Mary and her maternal preparations.
Fourth Sunday of Advent
Behold a Virgin shall conceive and bear a son; and his name will be called Emmanuel.
‘The Lord himself will give you this sign: the virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall name him Emmanuel’
This well known affirmation by the prophet Isaiah announces the coming of the Messiah into human history.
It already gives us a taste of the proximity of that marvelous,
stupendous day which will be the ‘dies natalis’of Jesus. It was
foretold by the prophets and proclaimed throughout the whole of Sacred
Scriptures that He would be the One who would fulfil and bring them to
completion. Our God will be incarnated and born due to the generous
willingness of the ‘Virgin’ who, from the very beginning of time, was
chosen to be the Mother of the Savior.
