“Sunny” Thoughts
1st Sunday Advent Year B Bulletin Message
Today is the first Sunday of Advent and the beginning of a
new Liturgical year. Advent comes from the Latin word: ADVENTUS, which
means “waiting for the coming” of Jesus Christ. At Christmas time we are
celebrating the first coming of Jesus into the world through His Incarnation. The second coming of Christ is what we are eagerly waiting for. Jesus
had spoken to His disciples how to be prepared for this event aswe see in
today’s Gospel. “Watch, therefore, you do not know when the Lord of the
House is coming.” (Mk 13:35)
“Take heed, watch and pray; for you do not
know when the time will come.” - Mark 13:33
We all take things for granted. In particular, we
take time for granted. Our lives are so busy,
many of us are planning our time - our days,
weeks, months, even years in advance.
Remember, our time on earth is a gift. None of
us knows how long we will be here. Start today
and begin thanking God for each and every
day. Take time in silence, everyday, and listen
to what God is saying to you.
St. Bernard spoke of a third coming of Christ, a secret one, which is already taking place here and now. Even though this coming is hidden from
us through mystery, it is nonetheless very real and powerful. Every time
we come together for the Sunday Worship, through the Word of God,
through the Holy Communion Jesus is coming into our lives. Through the
parishioners we greet at the entrance of our Church, those who regularly
come and those who may be coming after a long interval, we are actually
welcoming Jesus into our Church!
Christmas, hope for humanity.
That the birth of the
Redeemer may bring
peace and hope to all
people of good will.
Parents.
Hospitality is an essential element of a Stewardship community. Our SJN Parish has always
been a hospitable community. I am so grateful to
all our Welcome Ministers who have been so generous in sharing their time and effort to greet the
people at the door and to make everyone feel at
home in our Church. Hospitality is a virtue to be shared, not only by our
Welcome ministers but by every parishioner. It takes a collective effort by
everyone to let our parishioners and guests know that we are grateful and
enthusiastic about them, about their presence at our Church. Beginning
this Advent Season, with a renewed spirit, let us join our Welcome ministers under its new leadership, in welcoming Jesus into our Church through
our parishioners and guests. Wish you all a Hope-filled Advent Season!
Father Sunny
Pastor
That parents may be true
evangelizers, passing on
to their children the precious gift of faith.
There are a few
sponsorships for the Marian
Chapel still available. If you
are interested, please contact
Deacon Bill Marten in the
church office. If you haven’t pledged, yet please take
some time today to do so; it will save us a phone call
and you time on the phone. We ask that you be
charitable to our campaign volunteers when they do
phone you to ask for a pledge. As a reminder…..
Father Sunny would like every family in the parish
to have an engraved Legacy Paver.

John Neumann website: www.sjnlilburn.com.

Pensamiento Padre Sunny
“Estén alerta, velen; porque no saben cuándo
es el tiempo señalado.” - Marcos 13:33
1er Domingo de Adviento, Año B
Hoy es el primer domingo de Adviento y el comienzo de un
nuevo año litúrgico. Adviento viene de la palabra Latina:
ADVENTUS, que significa "a la espera de la venida" de Jesucristo. En Navidad
celebramos la primera venida de Jesús al mundo a través de su Encarnación. La
segunda venida de Cristo es lo que estamos ansiosamente esperando. Jesús
había dicho a sus discípulos, cómo prepararse para este evento, como lo vemos
en el Evangelio de hoy. "Velad, pues, no se sabe cuando el Señor de la Casa
está por venir." (Mc 13,35)
San Bernardo habla de una tercera venida de Cristo, una secreta, que ya está
teniendo lugar aquí y ahora. A pesar de que esta venida se oculta de nosotros a
través de un misterio, sin embargo, es muy real y potente. Cada vez que nos
reunimos para la Misa del domingo, a través de la Palabra de Dios, a través de
la Santa Comunión, Jesús viene a nuestras vidas. A través de los feligreses
saludamos en la entrada de nuestra Iglesia, aquellos que regularmente vienen
y los que pueden venir después de un largo intervalo, ¡en realidad estamos
dando la bienvenida a Jesús en nuestra
Iglesia!
La hospitalidad es un elemento esencial
de una comunidad Administradora.
Nuestra Parroquia SJN siempre ha sido
una comunidad hospitalaria. Estoy muy
agradecido a todos nuestros Ministros de
Bienvenida que han sido tan generosos
en compartir su tiempo y esfuerzo para saludar a la gente en la puerta y hacer
que todos se sientan como en casa en nuestra Iglesia. La hospitalidad es una
virtud a ser compartida, no sólo por nuestros ministros de bienvenida, pero por
cada feligrés. Se necesita un esfuerzo colectivo de todo el mundo para que
nuestros feligreses e invitados sepan que estamos agradecidos y entusiasmados con ellos, acerca de su presencia en nuestra Iglesia.
A partir de este tiempo de Adviento, con un espíritu renovado, vamos a
unirnos a celebrar con nuestros ministros, bajo su nueva dirección, a dar la
bienvenida a Jesús en nuestra Iglesia, a través de nuestros feligreses e
invitados. ¡Les deseo a todos una Temporada de Adviento llena de Esperanza!
Padre Sunny
Párroco
Todos subestimamos lo que tenemos.
Particularmente, no apreciamos el tiempo que
tenemos. Nuestras vidas son tan ocupadas, muchos
de nosotros planeamos nuestro tiempo - nuestros
días, semanas, meses, e incluso años, por
adelantado. Recuerde, nuestro tiempo en la tierra
es un regalo. Ninguno de nosotros sabe cuánto nos
queda. Comience hoy y empiece por agradecerle a
Dios por cada día. Tome un momento de silencio,
todos los días, y escuche lo que Dios le está
diciendo.
* La Navidad, esperanza para la
humanidad.
Que el nacimiento del Redentor
traiga paz y esperanza a todos los
hombres de buena voluntad.
* Padres. Que los padres puedan ser
evangelizadores verdaderos, pasando a sus hijos el
don precioso de la fe.
Aún hay disponibles algunos
patrocinios para la Capilla
Mariana. Si usted está
interesado, por favor póngase
en contacto con el diácono
Bill Marten en la oficina parroquial. Sin embargo, si
usted todavía no ha hecho la promesa, por favor
tome un poco de su TIEMPO hoy para hacerlo, nos
salvará de una llamada telefónica y de su tiempo en
el teléfono. Le pedimos que sea caritativo con
nuestros voluntarios de la campaña, cuando le
llamen por teléfono, para pedir una promesa. Como
recordatorio ... .. Padre Sunny le gustaría que todas
las familias en la parroquia tenga un legado del
ladrillo grabado. Toda la información de la campaña
se puede encontrar en el sitio de internet de San
Juan Neumann: www.sjnlilburn.com.

Welcoming All!
If you’ve ever been a visitor
to a church that is not your
own, you would know how
lost and unfamiliar it can
seem. Debbie Kosciolek, our
new Welcome Ministry Coordinator, hopes that no one
will ever leave our Church without being greeted and
welcomed.
Debbie loves the quote from scripture:
"Let mutual love continue. Do not neglect to show
hospitality to strangers for by doing that some have
entertained angels without knowing it." ~Hebrews
13:1
She has participated in greeting the visitors and the
parishioners alike over the past 5 years, and wants to
make this Christmas Season in our parish an opportunity
for all our brothers and sisters who have left the faith to
feel a warm embrace from our parish if they return with
Catholic family members for Christmas Mass. “I am
hoping that all members of our parish will see all visitors
not as an imposition or intruder, but rather as a returning
family member. We are planning to really stepping up the
parish hospitality in the days and months to come.”
If you’d like to help with the Christmas welcoming, or the
be on the Welcome Ministry, contact Debbie at 770-3094632.

The Angel Tree Program sponsored by the St. Vincent de Paul Society will be

this Christmas and bring the Light of Christ to those less fortunate in the
Lilburn area. The Angel Tree will be available after all Masses the weekends of
November 29th- November 30th and December 6th – 7th. Members of the St.
Vincent de Paul Society will be available in the lower level of the Church after all Masses to answer your
questions and provide instructions about the programs.
Additionally, many thanks to those who donated to the Turkeys Boxes. Your donations helped support
the Food Sunday and Angel Tree Programs. Through your donations St. Vincent de Paul purchased the
