Stay Awake Advent Meditations from Sarah-Leah Pimental


by Fr. Bryan Cunningham on 05/12/2013 -

Advent is the time we take a look at what is going on in our lives and how we can “get back on the message”. We know that it is the busiest time of the year – in Manchester the Trafford Centre is always full and the shops are always busy. Following “Black Friday” with the official beginning of Christmas Shopping we had “Cyber-Monday” when a new record of on-line shopping was reached and some banking systems failed. There is a lot of noise but are we listening? Advent gives us the time to reflect on the greater moments of life and the important events which change our lives. Bottom line is that Advent is about expecting the arrival of joy, peace and love in justice. The new pad or e-reader can be given as substitutes but Advent reminds us of the real Christmas. Join with Sarah-Leah Pimantel in taking time this Advent to focus on the great gift, the wonderful miracle and the loving mystery of Christmas. To download these meditations please click here
