Third Week of Advent
Advent is the beginning of the liturgical year.  It is a season of spiritual preparation for the coming of our Savior at Christmas.  It is also an ideal time to establish in our homes liturgical customs.  Most popular of the Advent customs is the Advent Wreath.  It is derived from an ancient European custom.  For many centuries, the week before Advent Sunday was a time for the gathering of greens and the making of the Advent Wreath, a project entered into by the entire family.
It's Stewardship Month at St. Timothy's!  Our Stewardship Campaign began last Sunday with a heartfelt address by life-long parishioner Christopher Christian. Thank you, Chris! The Stewardship theme this year is "If we CHOOSE to" --  because there is nothing to stop us from achieving any of our hopes and dreams at St. Timothy's if we choose to commit our Time, Talent and Treasure toward making these dreams a reality. Pledge Cards are available from the ushers at all Masses, through the Church Office, or click the link below. Over the next two weeks, other speakers will talk about what St, Timothy’s means to them, and why Stewardship is important. The same Sunday as our famous Chili Cook-off, we will collect our pledge cards for the upcoming year. St. Timothy's needs all our support and we will continue to move forward in faith ... if we choose to.

Special Intention for the Prayer of the Faithful for Iraq
Let us unite our voices and hearts before the Lord of peace. May the light of Christ fill the hearts of all suffering people with consolation and hope. May the Gospel message of Peace, through our prayers, inspire the leaders of Iraq to sacrifice personal interests for the common good and welfare.

Where appropriate, the following prayer may also be used within Mass or at parish meetings or gatherings:

Lord,
The plight of the Church in Iraq, and throughout the Middle East,
is deep and the suffering of Christians
is severe and frightening.
Therefore, we ask you Lord
to spare their lives, and to grant them patience,
and courage to continue their witness of Christian values
with trust and hope.
Lord, peace is the foundation of life;
Grant peace and stability that will enable all people
to live with each other without fear and anxiety,
and with dignity and joy.
Glory to Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit;
as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be forever. Amen.

Congratulatory letter from Monsignor Steenson.
Dear Father Stainbrook,
 
May God bless you and the good people of Saint Timothy's on the first anniversary of your reception into the Catholic Church. I rejoice with you on this occasion, and thank God for your leadership, courage, and faith, and the fact that Saint Timothy's is a vibrant and flourishing community of the Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter. As we move together into a future filled with hope,  be assured of my prayers for continued blessings
 upon your ministry, Saint Timothy's witness to Christ in Fort Worth, and the men, women, and children which make your community a Spirit-filled family of faith.
 
Sincerely yours in Christ,
 
Monsignor Jeffrey N. Steenson
