"Practically speaking, Advent is a time to enter resolutely, generously, and deeply into adoration of the Most Blessed Sacrament. Hidden in the tabernacle or exposed in the monstrance, Jesus waits for the arrival of His adorers and of His friends. To those who throw themselves into the embrace of His humanity, He communicates the fire of His divinity; and to those who cast themselves into the fire of His divinity, He opens the embrace of His humanity."
Dom Mark Daniel Kirby, Prior of Silverstream Priory under the patronage of Our Lady of the Cenacle, in Stamullen, County Meath, Ireland
