Welcome to Ss. Peter and Paul

 

 

 

Today is the second week of Advent, the second week of a season of waiting and preparing our hearts for the gift of Emmanuel. Emmanuel signifies “God with us” and is the name that is predicted in Isaiah 7:14 for the child who a virgin shall conceive and bear.  The Prophet Isaiah was not referring to a random child being born and raised by a random woman, but rather the birth of a child who, implied by his very name, will have divine presence.  This divine presence is God on this earth.  This divine presence is Jesus. 

This time the Church carves out for us is the time to focus on events that led up to the moment when God came into the world.  This time of waiting can be difficult, just as any type of waiting can be difficult.  But unlike the way we wait for things in our daily life, Advent is a season of active waiting.  It is a time to meditate on God’s desire for us, even as we walk through the waiting of the coming of the Messiah recounted in the Old Testament and allow the reality of the Second Coming to permeate our hearts.

God is awaiting us, and this season invites us to reflect on the mystery that God seeks us not out of obligation but because of his love for us.  Let’s encounter Him to prepare for his arrival. 

 O God, who see how your people

faithfully await the feast of the Lord’s Nativity,

enable us, we pray,

to attain the joys of so great a salvation,

and to celebrate them always

with solemn worship and glad rejoicing.

Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,

who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,

one God, for ever and ever.

 

Happy Advent!

Emma
