I encourage you this Advent to prepare for the coming of our Lord by avoiding comfort and complacency, embracing silence, and allowing your suffering to be redeemed, to truly make yourself open and receptive to God’s word. Enough distractions. Enough avoidance.
"This Advent, instead of falling once again into the endless cycle of preparing for the day of Christmas and not the season of Christmas, let us yearn to prepare our hearts and souls for the coming of Christ, and to use these days as days of penance and prayer, so we are ready to meet the Lord when He comes."
"While we give up dating during the fast, that’s not actually the point. The point is to come to know and fall in love with Jesus in a deeper and more personal way."
"Like you, my faith has a story, and I'm happy to share it with you here."
Easter is here today! Alleluia! But no matter the season we can and should always be Easter People.
