This time is a divine wake-up call for us all.

Good News

‘Nobody expected Him just like that: a baby, a manger in a stable, young parents from a village in the hills. Nobody expected that His first visitors would be shepherds, little thought of in the eyes of the great. Yes He has come; but not as we expected.'

Preparing the way

‘You can only see properly with your heart. Eyes don't see through to the essential.'

Being Awake

Advent calls us to wake up, to arise from our sleep, shake off the dust of routine, habit, custom... and to prepare to let Christ come alive in our lives.
