Advent Lessons by Sr. Marilyn Hettinger

Advent:

A time of hope,

Expectation,

longing.

Urgent message.

Stay awake!

Be ready!

Be prophetic!

Lessons taught by

Isaiah, John the Baptist, Mary.

Message of consolation.

Call to repentance.

Face the

Discomfort of the desert.

Confront the wilderness and clutter

In my life.

Make space for the promised Messiah.

A time to

Echo the YES of Mary.

Questioning

Not doubting.

How can this be?

Let it be done!

Listen

For the voice of God

Be open and wonder at the

Incredible gift of the

INCARNATION.
