The Second Sunday of Advent
Word From the Pastor
Advent: A Contemplative Time Of Waiting For The Light
In Advent we wait for the Light that will come and shine on us on Christmas Day, rescuing us from the great darkness and hopelessness we experience in our daily lives.
Advent, then is a very special season of hope that links the coming of the promised Messiah in Jesus with the coming of Christmas to our own hearts after a period of preparation, and with the coming of Christ again at the end of time.

Christmas Toy Project
All members of St. Pius X Parish and visitors are invited to participate in our annual Toy Drive. Our objective this year is to provide toys and gifts to the children of the Migrant Farm Workers ministered to by the Food Ministry of San Isidro Church.. There are over 200 families with over 450 children. We hope to provide a gift for all children up to 12 years of age. If you would like to participate, please place a New, Unwrapped toy or sweater for a child up to age 10 in the food baskets at the church entrances.
Please, No Battery Driven Toys! If shopping is a problem, a check designated for the “Toy Project” made payable to St. Pius X Church and placed in the collection basket or dropped off at the Rectory will find its way to the shoppers. May the Baby Jesus keep you all in His care as you continue your ministry of sharing with and caring for His little ones.

Isaiah foretells that even though the family tree of Jesse (David’s father) has been reduced to a mere stump, nevertheless from that stump a new shoot will spring-a true king filled with the Spirit and endowed with all the virtues of his ancestors. The new king (the Messiah) will be a champion of the poor and will restore paradisal peace.
Matthew introduces John the Baptist as the herald, foretold by Isaiah, of the long-awaited Messiah, and the one who prepared the people to receive Him. Matthew sees Jesus as fulfilling the Old Testament promises. Paul also sees Jesus as the one through whom God fulfilled his promises, and at the same time the reading from Roman continues the theme of peace and harmony of the First Reading.
