What is your name for God? In Advent the readings from Mass and the Hours address God with many names: O Key of David, O Root of Jesse, O Adonai. Throughout Advent I’ll share a few titles that I like, and you can think of your own name for God during your Advent prayer.
Always-giving God – Creation and Incarnation are not two separate events but one process of God’s self-giving. The process began with “Let there be light,” exploded billions of years later when God took flesh in Mary, and will come to its completion at the end of time when all creation is united under Jesus Christ the Head. The goal in our evolving world is to reach a “Christified” universe. What a Christmas that will be when we’re all caught up in God! Come to me, Always-giving God.
