Advent means coming. It is looking both backward and forward. It is a period of both waiting and searching. Mary and Joseph searched. The shepherds searched. The Magi searched for Christ.

Let us ask ourselves: What are we busy with? We await the coming of Christ. We prepare. Jesus will come to us, as He comes to us everyday in the Eucharist.

Let us examine ourselves if we truly live our faith. The search should begin in a person’s heart. May there be joy and peace within us that cannot be taken out.

In these days of Advent, let us:
Grow in holiness
Grow in goodness
Grow in purity.

A peaceful and joyous Advent to one and all.

In our Lady of Lourdes,

REV. FR. CESAR ACUIN, OFMCap.
