Jesus Came, Saw, and Conquered Evil

11-29-2020Msgr. Ellsworth R. Walden

Veni, Vidi, Vici. These three Latin words were spoken by Julius Caesar after a victory in the first century. They mean “I came, I saw, I conquered.” Today we begin a new Church year with the First Sunday of Advent. At our Masses, we will listen to the prophets speak of the hopes for a Messiah. Why do we need a Messiah? To not ask that question or see that need is to be what Fr. Liu spoke of in one of his pithy Chinese sayings, it is to be a frog at the bottom of the well.
