How to savor Advent

We have focused this week on mindful living, on actively seeking out Christ this Advent through prayer, meditation, traditions and more. Part of that mindfulness, however, is remembering that we are in a mode of preparation. Not only do we look to Christ and reflect on his coming — we also must prepare ourselves for his coming.

Whether through penance, reconciliation, prayer or service — or how about a combination of all? — let’s use these last few days of Advent to take a good look at ourselves and brush up our souls for Jesus.

Don’t forget. It is impossible without his grace.
