Adeste Fideles...COME and SEE. Adeste Fideles, COME and BEHOLD him, born the king of angels. Speak or be silent before him. In whatever way seems right for you, and whatever time, COME with your empty hands and your open heart. This Advent season, let us commit to a promise to COME to him who was born at Bethlehem so that we may experience a birth within ourselves… something stronger and braver, gladder and kinder… holier than we ever knew before… or could have ever known without him.
Advent is a special time for preparation, patience, waiting and HOPE. It is with HOPE that you are encouraged and called to see this time as an opportunity to draw ourselves closer to each other, and above all to God, who became flesh and lived among us.
Allow Jesus to COME and visit us and to hear him as he speaks to our hearts during this season of grace and HOPE. We are reminded and aware again of the journey he calls us to make and the work he would like us to do. During Advent let us begin to pay attention…to the COMING of our Lord, to the HOPE of the season, and to the joy in our hearts.
