4th Sunday of Advent

O Leader of the House of Israel, giver of the Law to Moses on Sinai: come to rescue us with your mighty power!

Mother Stuart reminds us that "His standard is the Cross from the first and He leads whither the house of Israel does not expect to be led. 'If any man will come after Me.'"
"When His true leadership shows itself it is not in the whirlwind, the earthquake, or the fire, but "in the whistling of a gentle air;" in the humility of His Incarnation.
His outstretched arm is a sign of strength and protection, of destruction of obstacles...on the Cross, a sign of the fullness of His oblation ad redimendum nos."

There is now only one week until Christmas! Let us be peaceful to receive the Prince of Peace!
