Advent remains a penitential season, but unlike that of Lent in many respects. I think perhaps we can call Advent a season of penitential joy, or joyful penitence. It is a time to prepare for the Lord’s Coming.. and He comes to us in many ways. We should become reacquainted with our Christian watchword: “wakefulness” … “vigilance”.
In this regard, I have a couple projects for myself during Advent, the beginning of a new liturgical year.
How about you?
What do you have planned for your Advent preparation?
