Advent Meditation

(Reposting this lovely meditation. It is a lovely way to start of the Advent season.

O Come, O come, Emmanuel…

As we travel along our Advent journey, please know that I will be praying for each and every one of you. I pray that this Advent season is a fruitful one and that you are filled with many graces and blessings and grow ever closer to our Lord.

My Wish For You

This Advent prayer speaks to my heart today:

Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, ever faithful to your promises and ever close to your Church: the earth rejoices in hope of the Savior’s coming and looks forward with longing to his return at the end of time. Prepare our hearts and remove the sadness that hinders us from feeling the joy and hope which his presence will bestow, for he is Lord for ever and ever. Amen.

(Prayer found at catholic.org.)

As we approach the final week of Advent, it is my deepest wish that you know Christ’s healing love for you. And that your heart is filled with great peace, hope and joy in the knowledge of His awesome and abiding presence.
