Welcome to Servants of the Holy Family, we are faithful to the Latin Mass, Catholic doctrine and morals, as endorsed by Catholic bishops worldwide who support the traditional Latin Mass.

First Sunday of Advent - December 1, 2019

In today’s Epistle (Romans 13, 11-14), St. Ambrose says, of St. Paul’s account, “From the heights of Heaven Jesus comes. Let the sluggish soul at last arise, no longer stretched upon the ground, for behold a new star (the Divine Sun) already shines forth to banish all things hurtful to us.” St. Leo adds: “It behooves all men to prepare for the Savior’s coming, lest they be found given up to greed, or entangled in the cares of the world.”
In the Gospel for this Sunday (Luke 21, 25-33). We read in the epistle, “Your salvation is nearer,” “the day is at hand”, and again in the gospel of St Luke’s account of Jesus’ warning: “Your Redemption is at hand”, the kingdom of God is at hand.” The Divine Judge will come soon, for death lies in wait for us and “a thousand years are as yesterday” in the sight of God. At this, His second advent, Christ will come to render to each according to His works. The Jewish race will continue to the end of the world to witness to this fact and to be converted. Earthly kingdoms will then come to an end, while the heavenly kingdom will begin, to last eternally. God grant us a share in it.

(St.Andrew Missal)
