Friends, Advent is all about getting ready for the coming of Jesus. This is a time of renewal — a time to renew our relationship with Jesus! A time to Be watchful! Be alert! Advent is a time of expectation for the coming of Jesus. We are all so busy in our lives that we need this time of grace every year to help us to reflect on how we can be more aware of Jesus’ presence in our life.
Let us ask our Blessed Mother Mary to help us to live more and more as children of God, making a difference in the life of our brothers and sisters— as during this Advent season we joyfully await the birth of Jesus.
Let us pray: All-powerful God, increase our strength of will for doing good that Christ may find an eager welcome at his coming and call us to his side in the kingdom of heaven, where he lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit one God, forever and ever. Amen.
