Oh the season of Advent has been deep. I find I’m spent. Not from buying presents, eating, or showing off/arguing/sniping on social media. Rather from the deep prayer of the last four weeks…
“The people who walk in darkness have seen a great light.”
And then the Gospel today, the beginning of John: “The true light, which enlightens everyone, was coming into the world. He was in the world, and the world came to be through him, but the world did not know him. He came to what was his own, but his own people did not accept him.”
True then, true now.
And yet–Joy to the world. The Lord has come.
Off to 12:30 Mass, then dinner with friends in the neighborhood.
My gratitude and love for your readership, your loyalty, your own questing spirits and hearts is boundless. Thank you, eternally, for walking with me on our PERILOUS journey!
Let’s be extra nice to our families today.
