I am using the same Advent wreath each day to impress upon us the virtues of hope, love, joy, and peace. If this picture had the white Christ candle in the middle of the wreath, I suspect we would have the word "Mercy" on it. I am convinced that Jesus loves to be merciful. This year of mercy is a call to me to be merciful as Jesus is merciful.
Keeping an Advent Journal has made me realize how much mercy I receive from God and others each day. I am just grateful and want to be a messenger of mercy to others in this wonderful Holy Year!
