Daily Meditation for Advent  St Francis, Parkview

Some opening thoughts…

We are awake to possibility in Advent. It is not to deny the child-like magical delight of this season, but it is to know it is more – always more.  As we consider our identity as individuals within the unfolding cosmos of creation, so we participate in a story that is our own but also the story of the salvation of humanity given to us as a gift as “the Word that became flesh and lived among us” (John 1:14a).  We are each so very much a part of that!  We wait knowing that this beginning, this sacred birth celebrated afresh, is not about a helpless baby, but a faithful God who invites us to make space and say, “Come, Lord Jesus, Come” (Revelations 22:20).
