He comes the God who is Father, Son and Spirit.
He comes for he has promised to do so.
He was there on the first day of creation,
he will be there on the last.
While coming at the hour he alone chooses,
the God who is Father, Son and Spirit
wishes that we call him,
that we desire him and keep waiting for him.
The Season of Advent is a privileged time for doing that,
to say and repeat with fervor: Come, Come to save us !
Come to enlighten us, uplift us, liberate us, comfort us !
Come ! Come ! at the hour that is yours,but Come ! We pray.

4TH Sunday of Advent
18 December 2011
to your word
The Archangel Gabriel approached Mary with words from Heaven
“Hail Full of Grace,
the Lord is with you”!
Mary pondered Gabriel’s greeting asking herself
“How can this be since
I am a virgin?
She, who is strengthened by the Lord, receives the grace to respond generously with the words
“Be it done unto me
according to your Word”
Do not be afraid to trust the Lord, and to give your own “fiat” as did Mary —whatever
you want O Lord!
Listen to the Fathers of the Church
n the Incarnation, the world
is changed forever:
God has come down,
God has dwelt among us!
The world waited for
the long-desired Messiah.
(…) The promises of God and the hopes of all peoples become
one in the Incarnation and Nativity of the God-man Jesus.
This, the great Event of history, changes each moment, present and future
We celebrate his birth in the Sacred Mysteries we celebrate,
as we await his return in Glory!
Mystic life and liturgical mystery
WORD FOR TODAY
Despite his great sin,
David longed to build
a house for God
among his people
Yet no earthly
home can satisfy the Lord.
God did not come to us
in riches, with gold-filled
palaces but in humility
He came to us in discreet fashion, through the humble words of a Virgin, who ushers in a new era for the world, and for the Church.
The Archangel Gabriel greets many in Hebrew with the words Peace!
Peace means more than words; God’s peace expresses perfect Blessedness.
Jesus, the Prince of Peace, heals and reconciles us, while returning us to that
Perfect peace first breathed upon the world by the Eternal Father in his perfect
act of Creation. Now we too can receive the comforting words of the Father:
“Peace I leave with you, my peace I give you.” (John 14:27)
May Mary teach us
how to say “yes” to the Lord, without counting the cost.
Help us to say "yes" to you Lord, because it is your divine life
that animates humanity and because
it is your love that burns in our hearts.

May she teach us the true meaning of Christmas:
to live in simplicity and that we might be convicted once again
of the dignity that each one possesses as
a child of God (see Alexander C, O.S.B.)
When we become more fully aware of this dignity,
then we will receive our New Born King in Peace, Joy and Love.
Our warmest greetings to all for a
Blessed Christmas and a Happy New Year!
