A joyful journey: Advent day by day

Second Week of Advent: "Live in harmony"

We long for the peaceable kingdom in which predator and prey live side by side, never threatening or harming one another. John the Baptist boldly warns us to repent of our sinfulness and prepare to welcome the Savior in whom the Kingdom comes.

On this eighth day of our Advent journey, rejoice. “Your world is journeying to the birth / Of God made man for us on earth” (John Betjeman, “Advent 1955”).
