Preserving Advent

Several people have sent me their reactions to my Catholic New York column of two weeks ago, “Advent Must Be Preserved.”  One that I found particularly interesting was from Sister Joan L. Roccasalvo, C.S.J., a member of the Congregation of Saint Joseph who lives in the Bronx.  Sister Joan’s reflection was published by Catholic News Service, and appeared in many Catholic newspapers around the country.  As we approach the Fourth Sunday of Advent, her wise and practical advice for the conversion of  hearts is still relevant and timely.  You can read Sister Joan’s column here.

A blessed Advent to all!

    Thank you for providing a link to Sister Roccasalvo’s piece. I was fortunate to be one of Sister Roccasalvo’s students in the past. She is a wonderful writer, teacher, and mentor, and she is a true model of Christian living.

    Thank you Archbishop for posting this. Sister Roccasalvo was a great inspiration to me and everyone else at Fordham. She is one of those people that constantly encourages and moves you to prayer. She was of great assistance while discerning my vocation!
