This Sunday is the First Sunday of Advent. During Advent we will prepare for the coming of the Saviour at Christmas. As we wait, we look at our lives and check we are ready to welcome Jesus into our hearts and celebrate his birth on Christmas Day.
The Gospel of John speaks of Christ as the true light coming into the world. In honour of that coming, we light candles for the four weeks leading into Christmas and reflect on the coming of Christ. It is significant that the church has always used that language—the coming of Christ—because it speaks to a deep truth. Christ is coming. Christ is always coming, always entering a troubled world, a wounded heart.
Tomorrow at 8:50am we invite all members of the St Joseph’s School community to join us at our Advent Prayer. We will light the first candle, the candle of hope. We will pray for peace, for healing, and the well-being of all creation.
