Episode 78 – A Time of Joy & Hope
In this Christmas edition of Big City Catholics, Bishop Brennan and Fr. Heanue discuss this fourth Sunday of Advent being a time of joy and hope as we reflect on the mysteries of our salvation. They explain the Christmas message "Don't be afraid," for God is always accompanying, helping, and fulfilling His promises because He loves us. During the octave or eight days following Christmas, we continue the ongoing celebration of the birth of Christ. As Mary, Joseph, and Zachariah said yes to God, Bishop Brennan calls us to fully commit to God, even amidst the challenges in our lives.
