The Brendan Option Homily | Advent 4

Party at the 'House of Bread'

“One of the things I love in the Scriptures is the way in which God archly leaves hints through the Scriptures of what He’s going to do or illuminating what He has done… even in the name Bethlehem (the ‘House of Bread’).

Join Fr Brendan Kilcoyne for his Sunday homily on the fourth and final Sunday in Advent.

“I can’t emphasise too strongly, especially as we come to Christmas, you can’t read the New Testament without the Old. The Old Testament has no fulfillment without the New… the hero hasn’t come on stage. It’s like Hamlet without the prince.”
