ADVENT IS HERE

"Anticipa-a-tion: it's making me wait....."

Yesterday was the first day of Advent. For the next 25 days the Church around the world will anticipate the coming of Christ. In one sense Advent is an act of remembrance as we seek to move back in time to the first advent of our Lord. In another sense Advent is an act of anticipation as we wait and prepare for our Lord's return. In yet another sense, Advent is a season of preparing the way for our Lord to make himself more at home in the life our faith communities.

Any thoughts out there on how best to make Advent a season of remembrance and anticipation -- both personally and corporately?

Peter
