Points To Ponder On Advent Season
Here are a few quotes from Pope Francis on Advent.
I especially like his call to feel the beauty of hope. Hope can seem distant … “out there” somewhere. But the call to feel it is a call to bring it in close, and to warm yourself by that fire.
“Advent has a special charm, it makes us experience deeply the meaning of history.”
“In Advent we rediscover the beauty of all being on a journey … across the paths of time.”
“The season of Advent restores … a hope which does not disappoint for it is founded on God’s Word. A hope which does not disappoint, simply because the Lord never disappoints! … Let us think about and feel this beauty.”
“Let us allow ourselves to be guided by [Mary this Advent], she who is mother, a mamma and knows how to guide us. Let us allow ourselves to be guided by her during this season of active waiting and watchfulness.”
This Advent, I want to warm myself by the fire of hope!
