Advent

P1030270 Lacy leaves OSC 1Dec12

Today is the last day of Ordinary Time. Tomorrow marks the start of Advent. It has been a year.

Following the voice of love, step by step.

Make room for Him.

The riches of being empty-handed.

In one year, I have learnt a bit of all of these – and some.

“Isn’t it interesting that ‘Advent’ and ‘adventure’ share the same root word?”, she said.

Following Him is the greatest adventure of all.

Facing all the unexpected, with expectation.

The words from this song hold beautiful meaning for this season:

I am not brave
I’ll never be
The only thing my heart can offer is a vacancy

I’ll hold you in the beginning, You will hold me in the end
Every moment in the middle, make my heart your Bethlehem

 

Be Born in Me (MARY) (Francesca Battistelli)
