Advent Hope

The Advent mystery focuses on the light of faith, upon the very meaning of life, history, humanity, the world, of our very being.

In Advent we celebrate the coming of the presence of Christ in our world.

The fact that the world is other than it might be does not alter the truth that Christ is still present in it...

Our Advent is a celebration of this hope.
