We begin the season of Advent with a heartfelt call for our own repentance. We remember God’s faithful love for us, and call upon God to help us to turn back. For “behold, you are angry, and we are sin-ful” (Isaiah 64:4). In the first reading and in the psalm, we recall God’s promises and lament our unfaith-fulness and our guilt. We call upon God’s might and power in order to save us. With Isaiah, we ask God to “rend the heavens and come down, / with the mountains quaking before you” (Isaiah 63:19).

Yes, God is faithful to us, because we are the work of God’s hands. God is the potter, we are the clay. And yet, our concept of how God will come to save us is rooted in our own expectations of a warrior God who crushes mountains and thunders into our lives with great noise and glory. But God has a different plan: the Incarnation.

The Archdiocese of San

Francis-co has a special ministry for men

and women who have

experi-enced the pain of separation and

divorce. We believe that the Church has a rich treasury of

people, Holy Scripture, tradition and pastoral ministry on

which it can draw to serve its members whose marriages

end in divorce.

We strive to lay open this wealth and make known Christ's

abundant healing love so that all who suffer from separation

and divorce might experience healing, reconciliation and

new life. We also recognize that separated and divorced

people, through their vulnerability, suffering, courage,

faithfulness and patient endurance bear witness to Christ

and His redeeming grace in the world. They are not

mere recipients of the Church's compassion; they are as

well, ministers of that compassion.

"May the church be the place of God's mercy and love,

where everyone can feel themselves welcomed, loved,

for-given and encouraged to live according to 'the Gospel." -

Pope Francis

"The Church is definitely against divorce, and divorced

peo-ple are strongly against divorce as well, but the Church isn't

against divorced people." - Father Al Grosskopf, SJ.

The Catholic Divorce Ministry has a meeting to answer

questions and offer help, at the support group that meets

the first and third Wednesdays of the month, 7:30 P.M. at

the Parish Center, St. Stephen Church, 451 Eucalyptus

Drive, San Francisco. Please contact Fr. Albert A.

Grosskopf, S.J." <>or call him at

Comenzamos el tiempo de Adviento con un llamado sincero al arrepentimiento. Recordamos el amor fiel que Dios siente por nosotros y le pedimos que nos ayu-de a emprenayu-der el camino ayu-de regreso: “estabas airado porque nosotros pecábamos” (Isaías 64:4). En la prime-ra lectuprime-ra y en el salmo, recordamos las promesas de Dios y lamentamos nuestra rebeldía y nuestra culpa. Invocamos el poder de Dios para salvarnos. Con Isaías, le decimos a Dios: “Ojalá rasgaras los cielos y bajaras, estremeciendo las montañas con tu presencia” (Isaías 63:19).

Sí, Dios nos es fiel, porque somos hechura de las manos de Dios. Dios es el alfarero, nosotros el barro. Y sin embargo, nuestro concepto de cómo Dios vendrá a salvarnos se origina en nuestra expectativa de un Dios guerrero que estremece las montañas y llega a nuestra vida con ruido y gloria. Pero Dios tiene otro plan: la En-carnación.
