05 Dec 22 – Encore: Adveniat Regnum

Today’s Topics:

Greg and Mark discuss Advent and what we must do to prepare for the coming of Jesus Christ at Christmas

1) In the first segment the term “Advent” is defined as “to come to,” who we are coming to is Jesus Christ in Christmas. To prepare for the coming of Christmas we must pray, fast, and give alms

2) The Catechism of the Catholic Church exhorts us to pray for Sanctifying Grace. The Knights of Columbus has many programs that facilitate prayer whether individually or as a group

3) In this segment the Fourth Precept of the Catholic Church is discussed. We are called to observe the days of fasting and abstinence as defined by the Church. Saint Thomas Aquinas tells us that through fasting we obtain self-mastery which is important to our preparation for the coming of Christ

4) The final segment focuses on almsgiving, which is presented in the Fifth Precept of the Catholic Church. Through our almsgiving, we exemplify the love of Christ to those in need. The Knights of Columbus have many community programs which assist men in fulfilling the Corporal Works of Mercy
