Advent Day of Reflection for Priests

This will be held on Thursday, November 29, at the Diocesan Pastoral Center. The presenter will be the fine Scripture scholar, Fr. Donald Senior, who holds a doctorate from the Louvain and was appointed to the Biblical Commission by both Pope John Paul II and Benedict XVI. He serves currently as editor of The Bible Today, which I subscribe to, and is a fine author of books and pamphlets. I am currently reading his most recent book, Raymond E. Brown and the Catholic Biblical Movement. The theme for the Advent Day of Reflection is “Advent – A Season of Hope in Challenging Times.” That is a day I look forward to.
