ADVENT 2015 is far more than four frenetic weeks of shopping leading up to a few self-indulgent Christmas festivities.  No, ADVENT  prepares us by word and sacrament to celebrate Christ’s first coming and the life we live as his friends and disciples in a world which so needs light and hope, justice and peace and love. This is how we await Christ’s  second coming at the end of time.
