Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, ever faithfuol to your promises and ever close to your Church; ther earth rejoices in hope of the Saviour’s coming and looks forward with longing to his return at the end of time.
Prepare our hearts and remove the sadness that hinders us from feeling the joy and hope which his presence will bestow for he is Lord, for ever and ever. Amen
During the season of Advent, Jesus tells us to stay awake and be ready. Have we prepared ourselves to open our hearts to Jesus? Do we need to say sorry to someone for our actions? Have we made peace with those around us? As we go about at this busy time, may we reflect the light of Christ. May we shine with hope. May we be like the love candle on the Advent Wreath, casting light where there is darkness.
Blessings for a Merry Christmas and Best Wishes for Happy New Year!
