Advent is a season of waiting. But it is not a sit back in an easy chair and wait for the coming of Christ kind of waiting. This is an active waiting, a period of preparation to welcome the coming of Christ at Christmas.
There are many resources available to aid in your Advent reflections. The UST Office of Mission has daily reflections you can read on line or have sent to your e-mail each day. (See here.) The Ignatian Spirituality website has numerous resources (here). Creighton University has wonderful Advent resources (here). And that is just the tip of the iceberg.
At a time when there is so much suffering in the world, I invite you to take time this Advent to reflect on your role on birthing Christ into the world.
