Standing on the threshold between ordinary time and sacred time, we open our hearts and become ready to enter into the season of Advent.

Advent—the beginning of the Christian liturgical year—is a reminder to the faithful of the imminent and impending birth of Jesus. We are a people pregnant—with hope, with love, with the joy of God’s coming. In fact, the word advent—from the Latin, adventus—means just that: coming.

Advent is—or can be—a time of expectant waiting, a time of holy anticipation of the miracle of Jesus’s birth.
