The above devotion was written and delivered by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr. Rowan Williams. It is worth listening to, reflecting upon, and applying to our lives during this Advent season.
“Advent… helps us to understand the fullness of the value and meaning of the mystery of Christmas. It is not just about commemorating the historical event, which occred some 2,000 years ago in a little village of Judea. Instead, we must understand that our whole life should be an “advent,” in vigilant expectation of Christ’s final coming… Advent is then a period of intense training that directs us decisively to the One who has already come, who will come and who continuously comes.”
- Pope John Paul II
