Advent has begun
Today marks the first day of Advent, that most beautiful, and often forgotten, time of year when we can take some time out to reflect upon the coming of Christ. I noticed in a reflection I read today from the Living with Christ missalette, that Christ can come in 3 ways – past, present, and future.
We can reflect on the past, when God condescended to us by sending His Son, who became a man through being born of the Virgin Mary, thus taking on all the weaknesses of flesh (except sin) so that we might become more like Him.
We can reflect on the present, creating a sacred space in our hearts and lives, to make room for Him so that He can be reborn in us yet again.
And we can anticipate the future with hope, waiting for his coming again in glory. Marantha! Come Lord Jesus!
On the Prayer Chapel page
, I have created a section for Advent Devotions
as found on the Catholic New Media Roundup Advent Calendar. Just click on the day to read, hear, or watch an Advent devotion. You can also find this same graphic on the Marian Cenacle Rosary Podcast
page – just click on it to get to the calendar.
I will also try to share frequently the things I am learning as I go through Advent in this blog.
May the Lord be with you in a new and vibrant way this Advent season!
