Homily from the Third Sunday of Advent.

We won’t be able to rejoice, pray, or give thanks always unless we rejoice, pray, and give thanks now.

Main Character syndrome can lead us to believe that we are in control. But there are many circumstances that are out of our control. We can often only control how we respond to our circumstances. As Christians, we choose to rejoice always, pray without ceasing, and give thanks in all circumstances.
