Something to think and pray about this week

The Advent Season

During Advent, we are invited to a real encounter with Jesus. It is a time to wake up and to rediscover our joy in life. It is a time to practice the words of Mary, ‘Let it be’, and to be open to what adventures may come our way. We become more aware of God’s presence in the hidden places of our world, in ourselves, and in the people around us. Can we be signposts lighting the path for others?
Go Deeper
As we begin this journey, think of a time when you felt truly ‘awake’ to events around you. Can you become more awake to the Gospel alive and active in this world?
