Happy Advent! Today begins that season of anticipation and preparation for Christ’s birth.
Advent is a season in which the whole Church is preparing for the coming of the Messiah at Christmas.
A voice cries out: “In the wilderness prepare the way of the Lord, make straight in the desert a highway for our God…”
What are you doing to prepare for Christ’s coming this season? A good practice that Christians have traditionally done during advent is to make some sort of resolution, perhaps even an act of sacrifice or maybe some extra spiritual discipline (like making it a practice to go to daily mass more regularly . It’s a great way to prepare for Jesus’ coming at Christmas, and what better gift to offer to Him than a renewed heart?
Pray about it. Ask Jesus what He wants from you this Christmas. And use these next four weeks to prepare your offering 🙂
