Brother John reminded us the Season of Advent. Advent is something that is ‘arriving soon’. People are preparing for Christmas by counting down the weeks left of the celebration of the birth of Christ. It is a time for renewal and forgiveness because God brings forgiveness to us in the shape of the Son.
This seasonal period is also an opportunity for us to show our gratitude for what God did for us by giving each other gifts and showing care for the poor and less fortunate. Let us claim our souls and lives for the work of recreation and restoration of the annual commemoration of Christ’s birth.
