Advent, the start of the new liturgical year in the Catholic Church, began yesterday. In Churches across the world, that first purple candle was lit, setting bright the path before us- all leading to Christmas Day.
Over these 24 days, an invitation remains before us. God is once extending God’s hands to each one of us, offering a deeper, closer relationship with our Creator.
Like all other seasons, these days will come and go. Perhaps this time can be different. Perhaps this time can be one of gift- an opportunity where you allow God to be gift to you, and you to be gift to others.
Join me these days for a daily, short reflection on how God is calling each one of us to light the way to a deeper union and relationship with our God- so that this Christmas, we can truly reflect on these days of preparation as fulfilled opportunities of bringing God into the lives of our fellow companions on this journey.
