As November Ends

It’s the last day of November
and the world seems at an end

We need a new beginning
Salvation He will send

Our joys here are fleeting
We hope Advent will renew

Prepare our hearts, oh Father!
We’ve put our trust in You


Humility is out of fashion

“Me first!” has become the passion

Being last has lost some luster

“I’m a winner!” proclaimed with bluster

But as you go about your day

Maybe take some time to pray

When you approach that pearly gate

You’re last in line,  won’t need to wait

(Based on today’s Gospel, Lk 14:1, 7-14)
