Sacred Space – Advent

This season has a twofold character: as a season to prepare for Christmas when Christ’s first coming to us is remembered; as a season when that remembrance directs the mind and heart to await Christ’s second Coming at the end of time. Advent is thus a period for devout and joyful expectation.1
