Advent: Preparation for the Lord’s Coming
The upright will be eager to meet Jesus at His second coming. Certainly dear young people, you and I want to be among the virtuous with our lamps burning brightly with the oil of our good works and witness of life. A very fervent Advent to one and all!
Living in a constant attitude of hope: Jesus has gone to prepare a place for you and me
Advent is a beautiful time of joyful waiting. In the first half of Advent we focus our attention on waiting for the second coming of Jesus. “Do not let your hearts be troubled. Believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house there are many dwelling-places. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, so that where I am, there you may be also” John 14: 1-3.These words are loaded with meaning. Jesus is coming to take us with Him so that we can be where He is. Jesus is the Way to the Father.
