The Advent of Emmanuel

The sacred time of Advent is approaching. In it Holy Mother Church celebrates the memory of that Divine Espousal which the Eternal Word entered into with human nature in his Most Holy Incarnation. Contemplate this mystery of infinite love and give your soul the freedom to plunge into its Sea of Good. Desire and pray for that same Espousal of love between Jesus and your soul.

~ Saint Paul of the Cross

    Prayer:  Jesus, you are God, yet you became one of us – “one who has similarly been tested in every way, yet without sin” (Hebrews 4:15). You invited us into the closest imaginable love-union with yourself. May the season of Advent open our hearts always wider to this.

~ Living Wisdom for Every Day by Fr. Bennet Kelley C.P.
