Advent Reflection

Published on November 26, 2021

If you want God, and long for union with him, yet sometimes wonder what that means or whether it can mean anything at all, you are already walking with the God who comes. If you are at times so weary and involved with the struggle of living that you have no strength even to want him, yet are still dissatisfied that you don’t, you are already keeping Advent in your life. If you have ever had an obscure intuition that the truth of things is somehow better, greater, more wonderful that you deserve or desire, that there is a mercy beyond anything you could ever suspect, you are already drawn into the central mystery of salvation. (Maria Boulding)
