First Sunday of Advent Year C
Dear Brothers & Sisters,
Advent is that season in the church’s Year when we look forward, as well as looking back. We look forward to celebrating the great feast of Christmas; we look forward to that day when Jesus Christ will come again. We look back on past history – to those figures who were so necessary for the Christmas event to take place at all. Isaiah & John the Baptist, Mary the Mother of Jesus and Joseph
her spouse. Did God really become Man? That is a question which we have to answer for ourselves. If he did, why? Surely to engage on a more intimate level with us human beings. Can we make room for Jesus in our lives? He stands at the door....and he knocks....
Have a good Advent.
