Happy New Year! (In November?) Advent marks the beginning of the Christian calendar. It is more than fitting that centuries ago when the Church moved from a Roman calendar, the preparation for the birth of Christ began a fresh year of worship.
During this first of four Sundays before Christmas, we look at God's timing. Sometimes we are invited to come… but yet invited to wait. It is so comforting to know Mary knew what it felt like to "hurry up and wait”.
I earnestly pray that all of us experience the power of patience during this Advent.
