No matter how deeply involved I am with my parish or the Church in general things never seem complete. Truly the Sacraments work in a way I cannot fathom but even they are only a foretaste of the reality in Heaven. When Advent rolls around every year I am reminded that somehow I am still waiting for Christ, even though he is with us all the time.
I recently read in the (outstanding) Divine Intimacy that Christ does not in fact have two comings - those being the Incarnation and Second Advent - but three. He comes to us individually as well. This Christmas time we can once again as Christ into our hearts.
May God bless you all and have a very Merry Christmas!
