December 18, 2016 - Life changing events often come from personal invitations. Decisions are made in both head and heart. In Rev. Kerrigan's case, he was invited to become deacon and did so mostly through his heart. Joseph is central in today's Gospel. He was invited to protect Mary's integrity by an angelic message, "Do not be afrain", for God is with you. As you prepare for the celebrtion of Jesus' rebirth, become aware of the many invitations God sends you.
