Advent – First Week

Do you try to give up the four S’s? Sweets, salt, starches, second helpings. Perhaps you’ve tried watching your weight, but have you ever waited in watch? Watching weight aids our physical well-being. Waiting in watch enhances our spiritual well-being. The short, joyous, penitential season of Advent focuses on the past, present, and future all at once. Even as we wait in joyful hope, we are already in the endtimes inchoatively as we proclaim the death of the Lord until he comes. The Second Coming at the end of the world shows us that the first coming in Bethlehem was not just a visit. Rather the Incarnation continues in Christ’s permanent presence with us. As we wait watching for the Second Coming, be aware that Christ comes in mystery through every moment of our lives. Did you see Him today?
