On the First Sunday of Advent (Year C), Fr. Anthony Ho explains for us the story of Jesus’ prophecy of the second coming. At the beginning of the Advent season, we should also prepare ourselves as we await His return. His arrival will bring about the last judgement, the destruction of sin and eternal life. Fr. Ho also shares with us the story of the apostle Andrew from his following of Jesus to his missionary work after Jesus’ death until his own martyrdom. St. Francis Xavier is another missionary who glorified Jesus with his life, relying on God to spread the Good News to Asia. His life is another witness for us to learn from and honor.
