Advent: The Beginning of a Journey

“The journey that begins on the first Sunday of Advent at the beginning of this new liturgical year will not end till we, too, reach the cross and the empty tomb, remember the [Resurrection and] Ascension and the going from us, recall Pentecost and the outpouring of the Advocate, and call to mind again the Second Coming at the end of time. Then, perhaps, we will be centered on our own final step into the arms of God when this time ends.”

Joan Chittister, “The Liturgical Year: The Spiraling Adventure of the Spiritual Life”
