Thinking about my understanding of time as we marked the first day of Advent yesterday. Perspectives are shifted and reality altered when we orient ourselves to the Church calendar and therefore the life of Christ. It causes us to live in the midst of the Gospel itself and how can that not change us?
This new year begins as we enter a time of hope, of joyously anticipating the arrival of the King. And somehow we live in the now and not yet…knowing He has come and waiting for the day when He comes again…our own anticipation a mirror of that long ago silence that was broken by the song of the angels.
