Show us your love and grant us your salvation

Advent has a way of reaching into the past and making Jesus’ coming a living reality in the present.

SHOW US YOUR LOVE;
AND GRANT US YOUR SALVATION
 
Advent has a way of reaching into the past and making Jesus’ coming a living reality in the present.  
 
In today’s Gospel of Mark, Jesus said, “Be watchful! Be alert!
 
Saint Charles Borromeo wrote, “Beloved, now is the acceptable time spoken of by the Spirit…This is the time eagerly awaited by the patriarchs and prophets.” Charles is using present tense: “Now is; “this is.” Advent has a way of reaching into the past and making Jesus’ coming a living reality in the present. It also, however look’s ahead into the future.
 
St. Charles also wrote this which I like so well. “The Church asks us to understand that Christ, who came once in the flesh, is prepared to come again. When we remove all obstacles to His presence He will come, at any hour and moment, to dwell spiritually in our hearts.”
 
In the responsorial psalm we acclaim: Lord, make us turn to You; let us see Your face and we shall be saved. With God’s help, we can turn and see our salvation again. St. Paul wrote in his letter to the Corinthians: God is faithful and by Him you were called to fellowship with His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.
 
Points to Pray and Ponder: Do you see yourself as the work of God’s hands? What changes could you make to help shape you into one, so you can be better prepared to receive Him?
