In the Advent waiting, may we respond to the whispers of the Holy Spirit concerning God’s presence through his Son in our human midst, discern him in one another and will to follow our Lord in his service to a needy world. In Scripture, “Good News” is announced just as much in the waiting as in the fulfilling. Think, for example, of the angel’s words to Mary: ‘You will be with child and give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus. He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High’ (Luke 1:31-32).
Advent greetings to all.
