Readings for today’s Mass
One of the thoughts associated with having liturgical seasons is to celebrate the two pillars on which all of Christianity stands: a. the incarnation - the son of God becoming a man in the person of Jesus and walking with us on this earth; and b. the resurrection - Jesus: the son of God dying and being raised to new and eternal life. It is good that we remind ourselves of this every year lest we slip into ordinariness.
Advent is a time of waiting and preparation for the ultimate expression of God's love for us by becoming one of us. This is most extraordinary. This time should be a new beginning of our pursuit of holiness; that we might be all that God intended for us as people of the gospel.
So, as you unpack the trappings to decorate for the upcoming celebration of the incarnation don't forget that the celebration is also a time when, as God's sons and daughters, God continues to walk the earth thru us.
You've all heard the Advent buzz line: Jesus is the reason for the season. That’s very nice, but let’s not stop there. Jesus is the reason for life, for the season and way beyond; back to ordinary time.
