Advent is a mystery, a deep and wonderful mystery of the Creator’s love for everything that is.  During Advent we look forward to Christmas.  But Advent brings into sharper focus, for a few weeks, the Christmas mystery we live with all the time, day by day.  The mystery is, that in our midst and up ahead is the mother of all victories, our triumph over all darkness, pain, unhappiness, and suffering.

These reflections were written to spark some new insights, inject some new life into the old, traditional language and ideas of this holy season. The Advent season is a holy time, days to cultivate hope and look forward to the surprising joy of Christmas. As we navigate through the season, momentum builds and the joy and wonder grow.
