Like a shepherd, O Lord our God, you care for the blessed members of your flock. Indeed, you bestow comfort and tenderness on all who feel lost and forgotten. In the midst of these Advent days, we search afar for the coming of Christ, herald of glad tidings. May this day, this moment of time, be a foreshadowing of the kingdom that Jesus promised, but that is still to come in God’s good time. This we ask through Christ our Lord. Amen.
Father LeRoy E. Clementich, C.S.C.
