Advent is about God breaking into the world. Yet we often muddy the season of Advent with activity. This year we focus on Simple Presence as we watch and wait for God to break into our lives.
We strip away many of the things that busy us so that we can anticipate his arrival with unobstructed eyes, ears, and lives.
“Take time to be aware that in the very midst of our busy preparations for the celebration of Christ’s birth in ancient Bethlehem, Christ is reborn in the Bethlehems of our homes and daily lives. Take time, slow down, be still, be awake to the Divine Mystery that looks so common and so ordinary yet is wondrously present.” -Edward Hays
