A Season to Hope - Advent advent 2017

 

Advent Week 1:

“The time of Advent returns us to the horizon of hope, a hope that does not disappoint because it is founded on the Word of God. A hope that does not disappoint, simply because the Lord never disappoints! God is Faithful” Pope Francis.

Advent provides us with an opportunity to live in hope.

We have every reason to live in hope in the midst of what may seem a world tossed around by anger and violence.
Advent is a time when we can take stock and depth the reality of a merciful ever-loving God who is always faithful. God’s Son became human, just like us.

The quest for us in this Advent season may be to hope in the graciousness and fidelity of God in our lives and in the lives of all humanity.

Let us stay awake to this reality!
