Advent, the Season of Hope and Change!
And Advent is the season of change. We hear St. John the Baptist's call to "reform" our lives and, hopefully, we answer. If we do, what a joy the Christmas season will be! We will stand in the temple of the Lord rejoicing like Simeon the Prophet who said, "Master, now you may dismiss your servant in peace, according to your word; for my eyes have seen your salvation, which you have prepared in the presence of all peoples, a light for revelation to the Gentiles and for glory to your people Israel." (Luke 2:29-32). Rejoice and be glad for your salvation is near!
