I am late today but excited that Christmas is coming in just four days! We are increasing our desire for the coming of Christ into our hearts again in a special way this Christmas. What gift are we preparing for the Infant Jesus this year? He really only wants our love.
We continue with the O Antiphons:
"O Radiant Dawn, Splendor of Eternal Light, Sun of Justice, Come and shine on those who dwell in darkness and in the shadow of death."
Our world has such need of the "Sun of Justice" to come and shine on all of us. Let us call with great fervor, "Come, O Come, Lord Jesus, and do not delay."
Remember to go out to see the "Christmas Star" tonight about 45 minutes after sunset. This is 800 years since the two planets will come together to cause this brightness and I wonder why today, the Winter Solstice, is appearing to call all of us to follow the star to wherever Jesus waits for each of us. Open your heart and you will find Him!
