Question of the Week
December 1, 2013
1st Sunday of Advent
Question for Children: What can you do to be ready for God to come into your heart and your life?
Questions for Teens: The Gospel tells us we don’t know when the Son of Man will return. If he were to arrive today, would you be ready for him? What is one thing you can do during Advent to prepare for his coming?
Questions for Adults: Advent is about God coming to us. What can you do during this season to make him welcome? How can you become more aware of the ways Christ comes to you every day?
Gospel: Mt: 24:37-44 If you do not have easy access to the gospel text, you can find it online at www.usccb.org.
