Advent begins this Sunday, December 2nd. Advent provides us with a deliberate time frame to prepare ourselves for Christmas. Pope Benedict XVI in his Angelus on December 10th, 2006 wrote the following:
“To prepare oneself for Christmas means to be committed to building the ‘dwelling of God with men [and woman].’ No one is excluded; everyone can and must contribute in order to make this house of communion more spacious and beautiful.” Let us then get to work and prepare our hearts, minds and souls for God to dwell more deeply within us.
Blessings, Dr. Lichter
