Prepare the Way of the Lord – December 1
This first week of Advent is about starting on a new journey.
‘The joy of the gospel fills the heart and lives of all who encounter Jesus … With Christ joy is constantly born anew.’ – Pope Francis, The Joy of the Gospel
With this joy in our hearts, let us renew our desire to encounter God during the coming weeks.
Christmas is a very busy time and it can be stressful. Let’s try to make Advent the time to rest, and find comfort in God. We need to have patience, and use this season of Advent to prepare for our very special guest.
Lord, help us to be more aware of your presence in our lives this week. Teach us to see you in others.
