Wednesday of the First Week of Advent: The Kingdom on Earth
On this mountain the Lord of hosts will make for all peoples a feast of rich food, a feast of well-aged wines.
A Fresh Start
Advent is far more than just preparation for Christmas. It has beauty and inspiration in its own right. It’s a fresh start, an invitation to enter into the silence and the mystery of whatever is waiting to be born or reborn in our lives. Paradoxically it’s an invitation to slow down, to come away to the quiet, at the very time our daily lives are immersed in activity—shopping, parties, baking, cleaning. It’s a reminder that the promise of Christ is “already but not yet.”
