Something to think and pray about this week

Advent: A Time of Waiting

A consumer culture teaches us that we should never have to wait, but that anything can be done at any time.
Advent is a time of preparation and waiting–of slowing down. Advent is a time to be present to ourselves, to notice God’s presence among us. Advent is a time of sharing and caring and practising the kindness that we emphasise at Christmas. Resist the rush. This Advent, be aware, prepare, notice what is there.

Our Prayer this Advent
Dear Lord, give us the grace to live with the things that don’t balance out as we would like, an acceptance of the blessings that have come our way. The graces of wisdom and insight are evident in the stories of Advent and Christmas. Amen
