The remaining Advent preparations are going well, although I believe the Jesse Tree may fall by the wayside…after coloring all of our ornaments, we still haven’t managed to attached them to their frames nor have we set up the actual tree itself. I think we’ll just stick to reading about the symbols and follow our traditions of the past.
With so many lovely feast days to celebrate (Feast of the Immaculate Conception, St. Nicholas, St. Lucy) it is sometimes hard to remember that the season of Advent is penitential. A time to “make straight the way of the Lord”. A time to prepare our hearts for the coming of our infant King.
May the Lord, our God, grant me the grace to prepare interiorly so that I may experience to the fullest the loveliness of this Holy Season.
May you all be blessed!
