In an article published by Fox News, TCA’s Dr. Grazie Pozo Christie calls for believers to focus on the Advent of Christ over the distraction of commercialism, in Christine Rousselle’s article titled, First Sunday of Advent is a reminder to ‘watch’ and prepare for Christ’s second coming, says Faith Leader.She writes:

“And what I say to you I say to all: Watch” (Mark 13:37).

This verse is from the Gospel of Mark, one of the three synoptic Gospels. The Gospel of Mark is attributed to St. Mark the Evangelist and is believed to be the first written Gospel.

“Although he was not a direct disciple of Jesus, Saint Mark is the author of one of the four Gospel accounts and played a vital role in spreading the Gospel as a missionary in the early church,” says the website for the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, D.C.

The reminder to “watch” and prepare for the coming of Christ is a stark departure from the “frenzied commercialism” of the Christmas season, Grazie Pozo Christie, M.D., told Fox News Digital.
