The four weeks of Advent are too often seen as simply preliminary to the feast of Christmas, and can be swallowed up in the bustle and melee of shopping and so much of what marks this time of the year. In the process, something beautiful and important is lost, namely the stillness and silence of waiting – yes actually waiting!
We invite you to take time during these days of Advent to savour the hiddenness and quiet of God-with-us, as the pregnant Mary savoured the life growing within her, as nature waits on the winter wheat sown in the darkness and silence of the earth. Advent is a time for celebrating the NOT YET of our lives – a time for honouring all that is incomplete, in the certainly of faith that knows He is with us through dark and silent times.
Advent is a time for contemplative living, for honouring the depth of life and its mystery. There will be a right time for Christmas festivity – too bad if we seek to anticipate it, and clutter this lovely season with sounds and sights of another time.
