My reflection today:
“Advent is a time of preparation. Long ago, the world lived in darkness and sin. God carefully prepared the world to receive his light, Jesus. The prophets urged the world to get ready, to prepare: Jesus is coming, God’s light in our lives.
We need to prepare – but not for an event that happened 20 centuries ago. Instead, we prepare to deepen the significance of that first Christmas in our lives, to open our hearts to the growing light of Christ’s presence in our own darkness and emptiness.” – Terrance Schneider￼￼
Can we take five minutes in all of today’s busyness to open our heart to the glowing light and warm love of Jesus?￼￼
Let this Advent be a time of real preparation for Jesus the light of the world.￼
