Today ADVENT begins. The Church offers this special four-week period of preparation so we can ready ourselves to celebrate Christmas more wholeheartedly.
- Now is time to rid ourselves of everything that threatens to compromise our Catholic Christian identity and mission.
- Now is the time to take note of the things that separate us from God.
God is drawing ever closer. Our task is to prepare constantly for the encounter. Live more generously. Love more courageously. Pray more attentively. Begin today.
Our blessed Lord has set an appointment to meet us.
When He arrives, will be fit and ready to receive Him?
