Deacon Lincoln’s Log 12-1-13

You know the time; it is the hour now for you to awake from sleep.
For our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed…”

Rom. 13:11

“When God visits, he doesn’t just say ‘Hello’”

Fr. Goeffrey Preston, O.P.

Are you ready?

That is the disturbing question of Advent. It is a question meant to rearrange our souls. It is not a question about Christmas. It is not a question about parties or presents or decorations or trees.

It is a question about who we are…

Are you ready?

God is coming. That is the meaning of the term advent. Are you ready to meet him?

He is coming to set all things right. He is coming to bring justice and peace to the world. He is coming to conquer darkness, even the darkness in our own hearts.

Are you ready?

Is your heart set right? Do you want justice for all people?

God is coming. Advent is here.

Are you ready?
