Are we really waiting? Laurence Freeman, OSB, asks this in his reflection for the first week of Advent. He tells us that Advent is a "sacred time to reflect, several times daily if we wish, on how consciously we are living....Are we fully accepting the moment we are in or fantasizing about something in the past or future? Are we really waiting? To be truly in the present moment means to wait, to be real and to know with the wisdom arising in stillness that what we are waiting for has already arrived. This kind of waiting is real hope"....

I think we are all called to just wait in stillness during this Advent.
