Live the Liturgy

Stay awake! With so many things competing for our attention
and so many details to attend to,
it is very easy to fall into a slumber.
We can find ourselves simply going through the motions of life
and losing a sense of purpose and direction. Busy with many things, we lose touch with the things of God, especially the gentle stirrings of His presence.
Advent calls us to the challenge of living a wakeful life.
Awake from the sleep that life’s demands can put on us,
and allow God’s word to transform our hearts.
Being ready for the coming of the Lord is life’s priority for the Christian.
Let us walk in the light of the Lord!
