Advent Begins!

 

We spring into a new Advent once again; that four-week period of prayer and preparation preceding the remembrance of the coming of our longed-for Messiah, Jesus Christ. Our liturgical celebrations during Advent make present once again in word, sign and sacrament the events of salvation history that lead up to the birth of the Savior.

 

These  events  are  dramatic  and  solemn,  yet full  of  expectant  hope  as  we  see  the  dawn  of  our salvation  on  the  horizon. The  sacred  liturgies  not only  recall  these  events  but  actually  bring  them  to us once again in grace and in mercy, so that we may be immersed in the joy and hope that they promise.  

 

God is the source of all hope! In the Incarnation of his Son, all can be made new through his heavenly power. All can be made new in our souls, in our marriages, in our families, in our nation, in our Church, in our world. In Jesus Christ lies the hope of the world.

 

Beseech the Prince of Peace to make all things new this Christmas!

 

Have a blessed Advent!
