Advent Journey

The vocation journey is an advent journey.

A journey through the darkness.

A journey of hope.

A journey with Christ, into Christ.

The vocation journey is a journey into the fullness.

Advent is the season of graced expectation, the season of waiting. Our experiences of waiting range from the mind-numbing wait in traffic to the excited expectation of a relative or friend, coming through the arrival doors at an airport.

Sometimes the wait is experienced as deadening, as a waste of time and energy, mere frustration. Sometimes the wait is experienced as anticipation, a kind of foretaste, almost a part of the actual joy of encounter. These are two very different experiences of waiting!

Advent is a period of graced expectation. The liturgy of Advent is full of promise.

‘Advent is your season!’ Advent liturgies, advent prophesies and haunting advent hymns are speaking about the necessary, graced wait, by means of which God prepares us for a wonderful gift! Live this time of waiting with expectation, with joy, and with trust.
