The Season of Advent

With Vespers this evening the season of Advent - and the new liturgical year - begin. Advent is a time of sure and certain hope in the Lord's coming: in this season we are reminded that the Lord will return at the end of time, and that even now He comes into our lives each day. The task, therefore, is to prepare ourselves for this coming: this is the purpose of Advent.
