Twofold Character of Advent – Third Week 

When you woke up this morning, did you think, “Today might be the end of the world”? Probably not. So it’s a good thing we have Advent. Advent looks to the First Coming of the Son of God and prepares us for Christmas. Advent also helps us to look forward to Christ’s Second Coming at the end of time. Pay attention to our Advent hymns. Try to find in the verses Christ’s coming in Bethlehem, Christ’s coming at the end of time, and his coming into our everyday lives. Will you know Him when He comes? Today look for Christ in coworkers, classmates, family, bell-ringers, podcasters, service personnel, store clerks . . . . They all have the face of Christ.
