ADVENT at St. Blase
We are all connected. This Advent, how can we move toward practicing oneness in our faith?
"On that day, a shoot shall sprout from the stump of Jesse, and from his roots a bud shall blossom." Isaiah 11:1
Advent is the season which offers us the opportunity to reflect upon both the time of Christ's return (Second Coming) remember the birth of Christ (First Coming). Advent is a time of expectation, joy and preparation. We must fight for our Advent Season! We can make conscious choices that allow for quiet time for prayer and reflection that will protect us from the mountain of distractions that can rob us from Advent. Can we resist the temptation to dive directly into Christmas? Our hearts need this time of expectation when we can connect more deeply with Christ. Let's find a way to be prepared for Christmas this year without denying ourselves the blessing of Advent!
