DAY THREE:

MISA de GALLO

18 December 2016

and the night before (Simbang Gabi)


Is. 7:10-14
Rom. 1:1-7
Mt. 1: 18-24

INTRODUCTION:
The 4th Sunday of Advent gives Joseph,
the dreamer and a just man, as the model
and inspiration of achieving Communion.
He is presented as being
open to Gods plan and
being ready to work and
cooperate with God in
fulfilling Gods plan for the
salvation of his people.

INTRODUCTION:

God after all is


Emmanuel:
God always with
us and for us.

What are the signs of this


openness and readiness to
cooperate with Gods plan?

12017 as the Year of Parish as

Communion of Communities challenges


us to more deeply discern not only the
structure of governance in our dioceses and
parishes but also the quality of faith-life in
the parish:

the fellowship experience


belongingnes
d by its
members
s
participation

1 In short, the focus is building

a parish that is truly a faithcommunity immersed and very


involved in the lives of its people.

To become a communion of
communities, the parish has to
undergo a yearly process of
planning, implementing,
evaluating, all the time
rethinking together the
goals, the programs and
ministries.

2 This cannot be achieved by the priest

alone. The building up of a parish


community becomes a common endeavor
of Clergy, Religious, and Laity.

Source of communion:
Clergy
Religious
Laity
working and praying together
to renew the parish.

Renewing a parish
community is renewing the
individual members;
renewing its member is
renewing the Parish.

3 Communion expands and further


deepens with
exchanges of experiences
and ideas
approaches and conflicts
encountered
and problem-solving
process and strategies.

CONCLUSION:

The signs that King Ahaz did not even


dare to ask God now God himself gives
these as gifts to the Church of
Jesus.
