Advent is hands-down my favorite season of the liturgical year, mainly because it is a season of hope, of joy, and of prayerful waiting. Over the next few weeks, my hope is that we can delve deeper into what “hope” means in our daily lives, as we prepare for the celebration of Christ’s birth.
As we heard yesterday from Mark’s Gospel, we are invited to “Be watchful! Be alert!”. While Jesus spoke these words to his disciples, these words are just as relevant to us today as they were then. We are invited daily to marvel at the many gifts God gives us that are right in front of us.
What can you “marvel” at today in your own life?
