The longing of Advent

 The true light that enlightens every man
was coming into the world. - John 1:9
Fr Orr ~ St John Neumann, Knoxville, TN ~ USA
"We can’t really experience or understand Christmas
unless we first conform our hearts to the longing of Advent. 
Advent calls us all to refocus our lives
on God’s promise of deliverance
and the flesh-and-blood reality of Jesus Christ, our Deliverer –
who came to us first in Bethlehem, comes to us today in the Eucharist,
and will come again at the end of time."
Archbishop Charles J. Chaput
"The Gift of Thanksgiving and the Advent Season"
