is the beginning of the Church Year! Contrary to the world around us frantically perfecting "the happiest season of all", the Church encourages us to slow down, wait, watch, and wonder. We prepare our hearts as inns for Christ, cleaning out all that gets in the way between ourselves and the one true God. Advent
focuses on holy joy, the tension between now and not yet, the incarnation, fear
and trembling with the end of all days, light and darkness.
