1st Sunday of Advent

Today is the first day of the new liturgical year, and unlike the new calendar year that is celebrated by joyous noisemaking, it is a time for quiet reflection on how we “put Christ on”, as the readings for today exhort. The first reading describes the place where God lives, while in the gospel we are reminded that the Son of Man will come at a time we do not know. Let us greet each new day by wrapping ourselves in Christ, as we enter Advent.
