On that day it will be said:
“Behold our God, to whom we looked to save us!
This is the LORD for whom we looked;
let us rejoice and be glad that he has saved us!”
We should ask ourselves what does “coming of the Lord”mean? In Greek it is “parousia,” in Latin “adventus,” “advent,” “coming.” What is this “coming”? Does it involve us or not?
Homily in Celebration of the First Vespers of the First Sunday of Advent
November 26, 2005
Who has inspired you to become a better person? A Teacher,coach, parent, friend? As we prepare this advent, write an inspiring note of gratitude to this person, or text them right now-thanking them for guiding you. If you choose the latter, let them know that you are writng a journal for class and not to worry :)
