Advent 2011

Today we are celebrating the arrival of Advent.

This morning, the kids and I unpacked our Christmas decorations to Christmas music.

This afternoon we celebrated the new liturgy changes at Mass.  

Tonight we will welcome T home from his trip with the basketball team.

Whew! This is just our first day of the season!  With all we plan to enjoy between now and Christmas, may the most important changes and preparations will be in our hearts:

Father in heaven,
our hearts desire the warmth of your love
and our minds are searching for the light of your Word.
Increase our longing for Christ our Savior,
and give us the strength to grow in love for our neighbor,
that the dawn of His coming
may find us rejoicing in his presence
welcoming the light of his truth.

~Opening prayer, First Sunday of Advent, Year B

God bless us all this precious season!
