May the peace of Christ fill you this day! I pray you have encountered the Lord during this first week of Advent! So, what are you waiting for? A sign? A message? An invitation? Pope Benedict XVI reminds us that this is a time of waiting and that we wait in many circumstances in our lives. “One could say that man is alive so long as he waits, so long as hope is alive in his heart.” – Pope Benedict XVI, from his Angelus Address on the First Sunday of Advent. As you await the coming of Christ each day, as you await the answer to a question, a desire of your heart, remember that you are LOVED. What do you do while you wait? Do you still serve? Worship? Move ahead? While this song is not necessarily about Advent, it does relate to the theme of waiting: While I’m Waiting by John Waller. May Our Lady accompany you on the journey these days and bring you to the Heart of her Son.
