Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

           Maranatha! This Aramaic phrase is translated as “Come, Lord!” Though usually used in reference to the Second Coming of Christ, we can cry out with this word today as we begin the new liturgical year, and pray for the coming of the Lord!  The season of Advent is upon us.  In these four weeks, we are invited to prepare our hearts to receive Jesus Christ our King.  The Scripture readings will remind us that we are to be ready to welcome the Messiah when He comes, and that the birth of the Savior will bring joy to our hearts.
          How can all this happen, though?  These next four weeks can also be the most stressful time imaginable! We have to buy presents and go to too many events, and some of the parties are uncomfortable occasions.  There’s too much to clean, bake, wrap, and decorate.  Well that is exactly why we have Advent.  These four weeks of prayer help us to focus on what matters most - Jesus.  All the other stuff that happens in these weeks has the potential to distract us from the One Gift we all need to receive.  The fact of the Incarnation - God made flesh - is the most important single event in the history of the world and Christmas makes that event present to us again.  So how are we preparing for the most important thing to ever happen in all of history?  This great season of Advent is our answer.  I invite you to check out for some ideas on how to make these next few weeks more spiritually fruitful, and I hope you will join us for some of our Advent celebrations.
