    What is Advent?
          "The Advent season is a time of preparation that directs our hearts and minds to Christ's second coming at the end of time and to the anniversary of Our Lord's birth on Christmas." This Sunday, as we begin Advent, we hear this invitation from the United States Catholic Bishops Conference, to prepare the way of the Lord.
          We are each called to surrender anew, as we invite Jesus deeper into our hearts in order to grow closer to him. "Advent also includes an element of penance in the sense of preparing, quieting and disciplining our hearts for the full joy of Christmas." We have many seasons in the Church and in our daily lives. Along with the early Church, this one allows us to reflect and refocus our attention on the joyful expectation of Jesus' return, along with anticipating the celebration of his first coming. Just as we have been baptized and accepted him as our Savior, we also pray for persevering grace to follow him all the days of our lives. Then we can look forward to that day in joyful expectation and to welcome with open arms, him whom we have loved.
          All of the events surrounding Christmas, including Mass, good food, gathering with loved ones, and giving gifts can be a way of expressing and sharing the love God has given to each of us in the birth of Jesus our Savior. So, for now, during Advent, we prepare and focus our attention on welcoming the greatest gift of all, Jesus Christ our Savior!
