Advent 2016

Advent is a season to prepare one’s heart
for the coming of Christ before Christmas.

In the liturgy of the church, advent is the beginning of the liturgical New Year. We place our focus in the four Sundays before Christmas in preparation to celebrate Jesus Christ in his First Advent and the anticipation of his return in his Second Advent at the end of time.

So Advent is a period of self preparation. It offers us an opportunity to pray and reflect on God’s mercy, forgiveness and penance. So let us pray and open our hearts to be renewed by the Word of God during this season of hope.

The Readings of Advent make us think of the beginnings when the people of Israel longed for their Messiah to come. The first prophets talked about the Messiah and especially of John the Baptist, who was the messenger of Good News and who prepared the way of the Lord. So today, the Christians like the Israelites long for their Savior to come again.
