From the first reading in Isaiah 4 today is so true of what we experience when with our Community of the Lamb - For over all, the Lord's glory will be shelter and protection: shade from the parching heat of day, refuge and cover from storm and rain.
Jesus, I am filled with so much gratitude to have this most special Season of Advent in our glorious Catholic Church! It has always been such a powerful way to bring our family together sharing our Faith with great JOY! We long to be with you always at the "banquet in the Kingdom of heaven!" Thank you for all the ways you help us on our journey if only we humbly fall on our knees and confess that we need you and are unworthy. Jesus, we trust in you. Amen and Hallelujah
Puts us in our place and away from the "me" and "I" of the holidays!
