On Sunday, our liturgical year will move from Ordinary Time to Advent. Advent is a time when we get ready for the birth of Jesus. So, what does it mean to be ready? Advent offers us the opportunity to look at the choices we are making and to see if we are ready for jesus to be part of our lives.
As we begin our Advent journey,
help us to look at the things we are doing
and changing the things that are hurtful.
Help us to prepare our hearts during Advent,
so we can truly welcome the Christ Child at Christmas.
Through Christ our Lord,
