Musings of the Ordinary 24

Advent is soon with us, and our Ordinary, Msgr Harry Entwistle gives us a reminder, in his latest musings that:

The liturgical colour used in Advent may well be penitential purple, but the anticipatory atmosphere of celebration turns it into a period of focus on Love, Joy, Hope and Peace rather than its previous focus on Heaven, Hell, Death and Judgement.

Advent has ceased to breathe with its two lungs of the First and Second coming of Christ and so is a shadow of what the Church intends it to be.

It is the season when we reflect on our salvation history and how God interacts with his people on this continuing journey until Jesus comes again to judge the living and the dead
