Pace Yourselves

advent2“Pace yourselves in these holy days. Enjoy the richness of the Advent days. They should be days of calm reflection on the Mystery of the Incarnation, God taking on human nature.  Decorate slowly and deliberately, not putting everything up at once.

This Advent I will seek to be more calm and reflective.  I will begin today or renew today my commitment to do this.


God our Father, in the fullness of time you sent your son to bring salvation to us.  May our thoughts and actions be filled with you this holy season.  We ask this through Christ our Lord! Amen.
