12/3/22 Advent Day of Recollection

In the first week of Advent, 36 Community members gathered at St. Jude Catholic Church in Tequesta for the yearly Advent Day of Recollection. Everyone brought a breakfast item to break bread together, followed by fellowship, reflection by Deacon Joe O'Connell, reconciliation and mass celebrated by Father Chuck. It was a Holy-Spirit filled morning with ample time for all to reflect on their relationship with the Lord and how many blessings the Lord has bestowed upon them.


Deacon Joe shared the Litany of Transfiguration, which will prepare our hearts, minds and souls to receive Jesus on Christmas Day.


Litany of Transfiguration


When I am tempted to look only at my faults- Let me see only Jesus.


When troubled by the specter of doubt and defeat- Let me see only Jesus.


When I can't see beyond the frustrations of the moment- Let me see only Jesus.


When the horizon seems distant and dark- Let me see only Jesus.


When I can't see the point of pursuing what's good- Let me see only Jesus.


When complaining and cynicism invade my peace- Let me see only Jesus.


When I can't face my problems- Let me see only Jesus.


When the world looks bleak- Let me see only Jesus.


When others measure and judge me- Let me see only Jesus.


When beset by depression- Let me see only Jesus.


When friendship is far from me- Let me see only Jesus.


When overshadowed by sorrow- Let me see only Jesus.


When I fail to use my freedom- Let me see only Jesus.


When it's hard to forgive- Let me see only Jesus.


When things don't make sense- Let me see only Jesus.


When I think I can't change- Let me see only Jesus.


When confronted by suffering- Let me see only Jesus.


When stress gets me down- Let me see only Jesus.


When it's hard to go on- Let me see only Jesus.


When blinded by sin- Let me see only Jesus.


When the hardness of life overwhelms me- Let me see only Jesus.


When hope begins to fade- Let me see only Jesus.


Our Father…


Closing Prayer: Loving Father, thank you for allowing me to witness the vision of your Son transfigured on Mount Tabor. May I become what I behold so that my life will radiate the glory and grace that remain your priceless gifts to me in Jesus. Amen.
