Advent is upon us

In only a few hours in churches around the world the first vigil masses for Advent will begin. While the second half of the season is a preparation for Christmas, we begin with a look at our preparation for the second coming of Christ.

How ready am I to stand before my God? What things can I rightly be proud of? What things in my life would be embarrassing to acknowledge?

We are all human, and therefore in constant need of conversion. Perhaps the se hours are a time to make some decisions about simple ways we can change or perhaps let God change us in this new liturgical year.
