Advent also a time for reconciliation

In the midst of all the usual non-spiritual preparations of the season — decorating, buying of gifts, cleaning, cooking, etc. — the Church invites us to spiritually prepare ourselves to celebrate the nativity of our Lord.

For us who are called to live on this world, but not belong to it (2 Cor 10:3), responding to this message requires an intentional preparation.
