Advent is a penitential season and there are so many graces given to us! Advent is a great time for fasting.
He is the only one who can truly fulfill the longing and desires of our hearts. He is the one who alone can satisfy our yearning.
Carthusians make saints, they don't publish them.
Keep awake, keep alert is not the same as look busy, or being busy.
In fact, one can be very busy but very much asleep. To Keep awake, to keep alert is to be alive in faith, attentive daily...
We are being asked to stay awake. Let's do what we can and prepare our hearts to welcome the Lord Jesus.
Let's think of Advent as a little mini retreat. We are retreating from the world and running to the Lord.
